I have a Maxtor One Touch II. I went to backup my computer and got an error massage; " Grooming backup set restore point failed; error 2242". I "looked into the system" and could not see any restore...


You indicated that ..."most of the drive's capacity is used."
That may be your problem. When you make a backup you need room for the software to create temporary files before completeing the backup. These temp files are deleted once the backup is complete. There's no real rule regarding the amount of extra space to have available, but I use 10% of the total size of the backup and have not had any problems. I'm also backing up to Maxtor One Touch II.

I want to backup my computers (4) and have maxtor partitioned and used at purchase time, but now when I connect it I get no prompts or choice of hard drive to back up. How do I go about back up?


You have a varity of option to do your backup depending on the type of backup you want to do.
1 Documents and folders
To backup your document and folders you can just copy the Documents and folders to the external drive.
You could also use the backuo feature of the Operating system you have like windows backup to backup your documents and folders.
2 System backup of your system.
You can not use a copy accross to do the complete backup of your system. You can use the windows backup to do this or a third party backup software.
Windows Back for Windows 7.
Click on Start ----- Controll Panel ----- System and Security ------- Set up Backup ------ Select where you want to save your backup ( the external Drive you connected to your system) in the box ------ Next ----- Choose the files or drive you want to backup and click next ------- Review your backup settings and save settings and run back.

This will save your files to the external drive you added to your system.

The little Maxtor icon is red; what does this mean and how do I fix it? Thanks. scbriel@comcast.net


That means that your last backup has failed. This could be caused by a number of issues and you should double click on the icon to open the program and check the log. Normally when you are attempting to backup a file that is locked by the OS such as a system file it will fail to copy. This could also happen if a file was moved or removed that was flagged to be backed up while the backup process was running or if you ran out of free space. Honestly, your software's error log will be the best thing to check for a solution.

I get a backup, but with a lot of error messages


Microsoft has some hidden directory levels and files in VISTA and in XP that are visible only when the settings for the directories in which they exist are changed from the hidden setting.  It's tedious, but possible.  I assume, then, that what you were unable to copy to your backup are these hidden files.  They're placed that way as a default in the Windows install to protect the user from accidental "mistakes". Example:  Under "users", {name},AppData,Local,...

New installation yesterday and resulting confusion


I've solved the problem (no thanks to FixYa, which appears to only want more of my money) by concluding that I have no problem, since I can live with a red icon that tells me my backup failed when in fact windows explorer tells me that my 160GB Maxtor One Touch III Mini Edition has backed up my whole system successfully, and I've been able to access files and sxtart programs in my g: drive, where the backup is stored. I figure it is showing red because I've turned off the feature which does scheduled backups on a calendar, as I prefer to backup on my own irregular schedule.

I only wish that Maxtor would have provided more information in the box to connect me with an online tutorial so that I wouldn't have to reach these conclusions on my own or pay someone to tell me what ought to be available for free, after all.
