Question about Maxtor OneTouch II 300 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

I can't access my Maxtor One Touch II

I had multiple data points stored that I can no longer see.

When I open the software to even attempt another back up, it does not even see a potential drive to back up.

When going through My Computer on XP, I click on the drive and it says insert a disk.

because of the power off on that will have messed up your trans-fare in that it will have corrupted your hard drive if you can still access the drive reformat it then use a recovery software to get the deleted files even when its been formatted it still leaves a fingerprint so the files may still be there

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.

Hello, I was accessing data on my Maxtor One Touch II when it froze suddenly. Couldn't access data anymore and not even close programme. I shut down the computer and when I now plugg it in, the computer...


I had this same thing happen to mine. I took the drive out and hooked it up directly to my computer. It was gone and there was no hope for it.If you can do this, it is what I would suggest. They have generic drives in them that will fit most any computer cables. When I did it, my computer would not find it. Those drives, I found out, were notorious for this. Hope this helps.

Maxtor One Touch II - installation Software


I have a disk that worked for me and I am running windows xp. I also have the website address that is supposed to have the 98 drivers which could work perhaps. http://www.seagate.com/ww/v/index.jsp?locale=en-US&name=Maxtor_OneTouch_Drive_USB/Win98SE_Driver&vgnextoid=b07d8b9c4a8ff010VgnVCM100000dd04090aRCRD

Guess you could try them first and if that doesnt work I could perhaps make a backup of the disk/package/mail/ worth anything?

Download and run maxtor powermax, when you run the program it will idenify your hard drives, select your one touch and run the recertify, this will not erase anything but will run a complete diagnostic and attempt recovery of data to recertify as good. If the drive fails I have recovery software I can e-mail you.

Old Maxtor/New Maxtor


If files you are trying to restore are encrypted you will have to use same software to retrieve them.. If not, any file in the external hard drive should be viewable with your windows explorer.

And U do not need drivers for external hard drives. They just plug into your usb port and work with modern OS after the unit is recognized.
