Software for maxtor onetouch 111 mini edition 120 gb

Hi,

I had to have my computer fixed about a month ago and now I cannot use my maxtor to backup. Apparently I might have part of the software missing. I have gone on to the maxtor downloads but they only have downloads for vista and I have windows xp. There seems to be no way around this problem. It is annoying not having a disk with the software on as with usual products.

Thanks,

June

Just called Seagate....they said you can download and use the One Touch 4 lite software and it will work perfectly... see link below:

Just called Seagate/Maxtor for this exact problem. You need to call Seagate to get the software.

1.800.SEAGATE (1.800.732.4283)

Here is the issue: The Maxtor One Touch has encryption software that is export controlled. Because of this, they cannot post the software on the web. The Vista "drivers" they post on the web only update your existing/installed software to the Vista operating system - it does not include the encryption engine.

When you call Seagate, they will verify the serial number, they will take your phone and email and send you the software.

SOURCE: Vista Home Premuim Use with Maxtor onetouch

Software downloads are available from the Seagate support site. Here is a link to the download page for Maxtor OneTouch III family. It should provide the latest version of all software that came with the new unit, including "Updated software to run in Windows Vista. Also can be used in case the original software that was preloaded on the drive has been erased."

Backup error


It's been suggested that the software Maxtor bundles with the drive is unreliable at best. you could uninstall the software from your computer then reinstall the latest version to see if that resolves your issue. Otherwise you will be forced to use ntbackup or a 3rd party backup solution.
