Files saved on the maxtor hard drive become read only. I cannot make changes to the files and save it.


The cause of read only files are the files open by other network. To fix this problem copy your files and save it again to your computer. Or you may open the files and save it again in different file name.

My imac has a new hard drive. Fortunately, everything was backed up on my maxtor one touch III. When I try to import my files back to my computer, it says they are locked and I don't have access.


It may be that you have a permissions issue and if the owner on your new imac is different from that on the Maxtor. Single click on your hard drive then go to the file menu and select get info and see under sharing and permissions who the owner is it may be a case that the owner is unknown. If this is the case click on the padlock and insert your password then click on the + (at the bottom left) and select the appropriate owner and make the privilege to be read & write then on the gear symbol * (next to the minus symbol) and make it Apply to enclosed items.

If they are truly locked first of all try this with a single file on the drive single click on the file and then go to the file menu and select get info and see if the "locked" checkbox is shown under general. If it is uncheck it for this file and see if you can transfer it across. If it works then single click on the disk drive and see if the dik drive is locked.

Hope this helps

After windows re-install, locked out of Maxtor drive


Hi,

Sounds like you're on the right track, but you don't need to buy another drive to get the software. Go to the link below and find the download for your drive in the list.

The software downloads are a free form of support from Maxtor.

If you have trouble or this doesn't work then post back here and I'll see what else we can do to help.

Unlocking external drive


You may have the encryption set on the drive - meaning it needs a password to access the Maxtor. Is this problem on the original computer you installed the Maxtor or on a different machine? Either way try reinstalling the Maxtor software. If you do not have it you can get it online at:
