Question about Maxtor One Touch (RBAY080B0USR) Hard Drive
My one touch button is associated with a batch file in "My Documents" to conduct a partition back up. It worked recently, but yesterday didn't. However, when I double clicked on the batch file the back up to my external Maxtor One touch hard drive took place.
Back up all the data on the disk to your Mac. Plug the disk into your Windows computer and format it with a FAT32 filesystem. Both Mac and Windows can use FAT32. Do not format as NTFS.

The safety drill ONLY copies documents and email stuff. So the restoration process would only put back all the documents (and pictures) and email info. It should not interfere with the rest of your computer setup at all.

I had the same problem and the Maxtor/Seagate website did not have any solutions. I finally got in touch with Tech Support and got a fix. I was using it with a Dell tower and plugging into a USB port in the front. I also was using an after market cable.
I learned the Maxtor is a power hog and beeps and shuts down when it is not getting enough power. I did not know but the USB ports on the front of a desktop/tower computer do not provide as much power as a port on the back (the back ports are sometimes directly connected to the motherboard). I got a USB extension cable and connected it to a USB port in the back and it solved the problem.
I also learned that most laptop USB ports are not powerful enough to run the Maxtor. Mine would also not work if you attempt to share it by using an unpowered USB hub. I have gotten it to work with a powered desktop USB hub (Belkin).
I believe that this may explain why you get a "Y" cable with the drive. I could not find an explaination for the cable or how to use. There may be an accessory to purchase that attached to the cable and powers it.

Sorry, Maxtor prog on poota is currupted. Have you recently downloaded programmes? When updating, some progs have a nasty side-effct of hitting some other programmes, not all the time,just your important ones?
You will have to uninstall and reinstall Maxtor prog, Not sure there might be a repair facility, not sure but it worth a try before uninstalling all.
