Angry  Portable Hard Drive Malfunction
Today we helped our brother buy a new PC for him and our father to use. Got it set up, no problem. But now the portable hard drive that stored all their old emails and stuff doesn't work right.

We took the portable drive home and tried it on our PC. Still nothing. We know that we "safely removed hardware" when we unplugged it from our brother's old PC.

WTF is going on?

To make matters worse, iomega (the company who makes the portable drive and the nearly identical one we have for our use) no longer exists. They were bought out by Lenovo, which basically discontinued the product line and related support. So now anyone who owns an iomega anything is up sh*t's creek.

We're going to take our brother's portable drive over to Best Buy and have the Geek Squad check it out. We have to prepare ourselves for the very likely possibility that our father's and brother's old emails are lost. Volcano

And we have to buy two new portable hard drives. Of another brand, obviously.

F*CK.
