I downloaded the AP software update 7.3.1 for our APEB and through a configuration recommended by "goobimama" from this forum, was able to see the Seagate external drive on the right side of the desktop. I backed up via Time Machine which seemed to take forever. I cannot seem to find what Goobimama suggested. And, I don't know if that would be a fix or if something else needs to be done.

Then, I lost the icon on the desktop. I no longer see the backup drive in the Finder.

We have an iMac in an adjacent room that is rigged with an external drive wired directly to the computer. It was this way when I originally saw the icon on the MBP.

My AP Utility sees the HD when the HD is plugged into the APEB, but the icon doesn't show up on the desktop????

Can anyone suggest a fix for this troubling issue?
