I have two backup volumes connected by USB to my iMac. There has always been yellow folder icons on my desktop showing they are connected but they have now disappeared. Don't know why! How do I get them back please.

Unplug them and plug them back in again.

Yes agreed. On start up this morning they are both thankfully back on the desktop. Don't understand what happened yesterday.

Quirky computer problems with no obvious reason?

First resort: restart computer
Secondary resort: restart application
Tertiary resort: fiddle about trying to get things to work

(In order of potential success hit-rate of practical usefulness)

Part of tertiary resort: launch Disk Utility where you should see the volumes - if the toolbar says 'Mount', click that.
