Can't access a particular share on my iomega mdhd500-N external drive. I can only see the drive while under the
'properties option
' and it shows a full All BLUE drive. I’m using XPpro with all the updates. I know there are other shares on this drive, but I can't access them either, it only see’s this one share. Is it possible that, that share grew to occupy the entire remaining space on the drive?

Just to clarify, when you say share do you mean partition.
I think you have a few partitions on your External Drive but you see only one.
Please check what you see in Disk Management.

Iomegs MDND500-N.
Yes, I do have three partitions on that networked "Ethernet" cabled drive. The only way I've been able to see it is by. logging into the drives webpage, which reports FULL? Even using the few tools available. I used the reboot software and he reset drive tools. I downloaded the latest S/W from None of my computers see this drive. But the four other external drives are present and can be accessed. The blue drive light blinks all the time, even after reboot and resets. The data lights show activity.Still I can't get into the drive. Is it starting to look like a for**t?
