I did a disc clone of my local drive to a USB hard drive. I then swaped out the old local drive for a new local drive and did a clone disc from the copy on the USB drive to the new local drive. Everything worked great. But when I wiped the USB drive clean, It no longer appears when it is plugged into a USB port. How do I get it back?

Tim what Acronis product are you using ME7 or True Image?

What doesn't the USB drive appear in, the Acronis product, Windows Explorer or Windows Disk Management?
