Data deleted from Iomega hard disk never goes to Recycle Bin on your computer, but it doesn't mean that it has gone forever. When sending "delete" command, you're marking the content as useless and make it invisible. Meanwhile, the part of the Iomega hard drive where deleted files took over previously is marked as blank for new files. To maximize the chance of recovering files from Iomega HDD, don't use it anymore from now. Don't save new files on it, don't read files from it and don't plug it into any computer. Just put it away until you find a good hard drive recovery software to recover lost files.
It's also very important to get a dependable hard drive recovery software. Unreliable one may put your lost data at risk of being destroyed and unrecoverable. Choose one seriously from professional websites. If you've got one, just install it on your computer. If not. here is my recommendation: Recoverit or Recoverit for Mac, 100% trustworthy software. You can use them to recover various data, including photos, videos, audio files, Office documents, PDF, email, etc., from your Iomega hard disk, as well other kinds of hard disk such as Seagate, WD, Samsung and more.
