The following is a list of guides for the Seagate Maxtor Touch III series.. You will need to scroll down and select whichever Maxtor One Touch external drive you purchased. Once you find the correct drive, click on Installation Guide (PDF) to the right of the drive. You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader (Free Download)

Hope this helps - Maxtor One Touch III Series Guides

> I do not want to screw anything up.

First, purchase a new internal disk-drive (newer? faster? bigger?) and set aside your current disk-drive, rather than "overwriting" any of the files on the current disk-drive when reinstalling Windows.

Second, reinstall Windows.

Third, reinstall the Maxtor software that you used to do the "backup".

Fourth, connect the OneTouch, and use that Maxtor software to "restore" the files.

Since your "original" disk-drive is not connected to your computer, it is IMPOSSIBLE to "screw-up" disasterously.

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.

Backup software compresses the files and encodes them to an image file made up of a series of sequenced files. The same software you used to do the backup should have the restore options needed to locate desired files. SimpleTech website shows Fabrik to be the name of the backup software.
If you utilized, there's also an online backup site used to store files. Following link is the users guide:

Maxtor only backing up certain files instead of entire computer.


Your system is backiing up only the changes or deltas from the last backup. If you truly want to backkup everything again, you must opent the one touch backup utility and set the full backup option. You can find the one touch program under the Progams list on the Start menu.

I've had to use it many times in the past but in this case you need to plug that drive into another system as an external drive or slave drive and run the software from there. It will rebuild the drive and hopefully recover the files.

After you get back your files, you can then format the drive and reinstall your system.

Hi, I lost user manual, need to restore files back to computer.


Provided that you can find your external drive using My Computer feature, double click on that drive icon and search the drive for the files you wish to put on the computer drive (C drive). If you right click the file or folder on the Maxtor external drive and then choose copy, you can go to the folder on the C drive that you want to paste them into, select it and then right click the folder icon and choose paste to put them into the folder. To make the process quicker, you might choose to paste all files and/or files from the Maxtor drive onto the computer desktop and then move them around later.
