The USB hub is plugged into the USB on the computer and does not have a power adapter with it, the seagate does not have a power adapter just a special plug with a usb on one end and the right one for the seagate but no power supply.

If I remove the USB hub I will not have a key board to use at all.  The mouse is plugged into the computer.  I have a Lenovo Think model and it does not have enough usb ports.

Before all of this I screwed with the /var and became unable to download updates or any files at all and brasero will not work so I can back up my home partition.  I screwed the pooch on this one and at 72 years old I have forgotten a lot of stuff.

So, your Lenovo Think[Center|Light|Pad|Station] has two (2) USB 2.0 or 3.0 type-A ports?

Can you plug the mouse and the keyboard into the hub, plug the hub into the computer, and plug the USB HDD into the computer?

The mouse is plugged into the computer back and the keyboard is plugged into the USB hub.  I could unplug the mouse and use it for the hard drive.  That would probably work but I would have to do everything with the keyboard if I remember how to not use a mouse, LOL.  But it would work, yes?
