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

Does my Maxtor back up my iphotos?


Run a time machine backup. Then the easiest way would be to find a photo that you are willing to delete in iPhoto.

Jot down the name of the photo file, delete it. Then empty the trash.

Then go into time machine, try to search for that file, when you locate it, restore it. If you can then there is probably a good chance that you time machine backup is good.

To be on the safe side why not create a manual backup.

You'll find the iPhoto Library at:


/Users/username/Pictures

"username" will be your name that appears when you login to the computer.

  1. To get there, double-click the icon for your hard drive to open it, then double-click the Users folder. Double-click your Home folder, which is identified by a house icon and your username, and then double-click the Pictures folder to open it.
        1. Inside the Pictures folder you'll see a file called iPhoto Library. Copy the iPhoto Library file to a location other than your hard drive, such as your Maxtor external hard drive.

> 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.

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.

Problem open up my maxtor one touch 500gb to retieve photos


first, recover your files. You will need to use hard drive deleted photo recovery program like Asoftech Photo Recovery, you can follow this video to recover deleted photo
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sNxApz_PBW8

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.
