Maxtor Personal Storage Unit 3200 - Model U01E100

Please email User Guilde for the Maxtor Personal Storage Unit 3200, Model U01E100.  We use this as our backup unit for storage of monthly backups ( We are a construction firm).  Our unit is less than a year old and is saying it is full.  We need to know how to have our backups each month  overwrite the one from the previous month.  Therefore saving space on our unit and being more efficient.

Thank you,

It makes no difference how old the drive is, unless you transfer the same amount of content everyday and can chart and predict. It  might help to wrap your mind around the actually capacity and extent of files you trasfer and use. If that drive is a 200GB....1 gigabyte is roughly 1 cd and a half. A compact disc can hold 700MB, or gauge it to like a ipod.  So if youre possibly transferring say 2GB per day, you will reach the max of the drive in 3 months?

2GB X 90 days=180GB

If you are using graphic applications, or may want to look towards a 320 GB or 500GB as things only get larger with current computers........Just 3 years ago, who knew what a gigabyte was? Now we own drive in upwards to 1TB ( terabyte ).

keep me posted..

Try connecting the Maxtor to another computer and if it functions normally, then backup your data. Then try formating the Maxtor on your computer.

Yes you can use this as your "Database" storage. You just have to set up up as a drive on your computer and share it to whom ever on your network.
