I could not copy my data from my imac to my iomega hard

Customer Question

I could not copy my data from my imac to my iomega hard drive.
So I tried to put a partition on the iomega hard drive following instructions from Apple.
It named the partition (Untitled 1).
It seems like I erased all the data from my hard drive!
Before I did this when I would plug in my iomega hard drive it would say "Timmy T".
I would click on the icon and I could see all my pictures and videos.
Now when I plug it in it says "Untitled 1"
When I click on that I see nothing.
Is there a way to get rid of the partition or restore my data?

This is exactly what I did.

ok, you have lost the data sorry, it completely wiped it when you did this. Its what happens when you do partitioning.

Your best to use Gnome which is free to set the partition the way you wish and you can obtain it via my link below

But always, when making or creating partitions, make sure you backup your data first please.

If you have any problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

And if you can take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the screen then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.
