Google iomega v-clone

The first item on the list should tell you all you need to know.

External Hard Drives are typically plug-and-play. What are you trying to do?

If the Hard drive is supposed to come with backup software and there isn't an install disk included. The install files should either be on the hard drive itself or on the manufactures website.

To access the contents of the external hard drive go to start menu (the screen with all of the colorful tiles) and type "computer" select the computer option that comes up. Your external hard drive will be listed in here. (Note: the C: drive is your local hard drive.)

omega v-clone is cloning software. Not like any other cloning software though, designed for a particular purpose. Until the OP learns how to use this software, the external hard drive will be empty, probably not even partitioned as the omega v-clone will do the partitioning.

Thanks for the info StuartS! It just sounded like the make and model of an external hd. Now that I know we're not talking about just an external hd, I agree with what you're saying. Even if you know what you're doing, disk cloning can sometimes be difficult!

Maybe I shouldn't assume! haha.

hi guys. i have been playing around for a long time, need i say that i have got nowhere. This iomega drive came with the v-clone drivers installed, as are all of the new iomega drives. in my mind i just wonder if the drive is faulty or maybe it does not like windows 8?
has anyone seen a manual online that will help'
Thanks for your replies. lessmith.

Pasting "iomega v-clone manual" into 3 different search engines give me this as a no. 1 hit: download.iomega.com/manuals/vclone/usage/d31544200-en.pdf
