My Iomega 1TB drive just disappeared from my computer but shows in  devise manger as working fine..I tried Logical Disk Management but get server execution errors and i have not been able to fix that; to get a new drive letter. I got a USB to  SATA adapter to see if that was the problem,and no change...I did not have a back up..it was my backup...lol. How do i fix this hard drive or get my data off of it...somebody please help..I was help here before..a few years ago..Thanks

Is the drive reflected in Disk Management?

So that's external USB drive. It's possible that hard drive itself just normal SATA drive and is working but parts around it, that makes it USB compatible, are not. So you could get that HDD out of Iomega's case and connect it to PC directly. There are some risks doing that so try different options first.
