    As i am running windows xp professional i selected the tools menu /advanved settings selected show hidden files and unchecked use simple file sharing.neither of these had to be changed. i also checked the permissions and deny was not checked in any boxes.

  • techwork Dec 14, 2007

    yes i have looked at this link but the files requiring backup are just under my documents. i tried it with just one file which was a word doc under my documents and the problem is still there. the screen i need flashes on in the right sequence but switches back within one second and starts the file selection choices again back in screen 1.

    Hate to keep using links but Seagate has an update that you may want to try for the backup. There are other files on that page that can be downloaded and installed. Should work, if not, let me know.

    This software is only for Vista, XP will not work.

  • Lyle Siemens

    I can see that they only support this for Vista. As I was thinking, there are certain Word document files that can do this. Try to save all the Word files to the other computer, delete them from the system and try it again.

How to delete backup on my seagate backup plus slim


Detailed steps to manage backup disk space

To delete old backups on Windows 7/8/10 using AOMEI Backupper, you need to set up Backup Scheme during the process of creating a backup. When your backup versions exceed the number of backup images files, AOMEI Backupper will delete older backup automatically.
Step 1: Connect your Seagate Backup Plus drive or Central hard drive to the computer and make sure it can be detected by your computer.
Step 2: Download AOMEI Backupper Professional, install and launch it.
Step 3: Click Backup and File Backup subsequently
Step 4: Choose the files and folders you want to backup and pitch on a path for it. Then, Click Schedule option and select Schedule Settingsfrom the following window.
Step 5: Click Scheme option, tick Enable Disk Space Management and select whatever Scheme you need from the drop-down menu. Then, back to the main page of File Backup and click Start
Backup. After that, your older backup will be deleted automatically when your file backups exceed the versions of backup image files.

PC RECOVERY & MAXTOR ONETOUCH 4 MINI SOFTWARE


MAXTOR MANAGER & SOFTWARE MANAGEMENT
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
These notes are offered because the software is problematic after the Maxtor Manager has been used a few times. But if you can get round its foibles it can be absolutely invaluable, being much quicker and more convenient as a rescue system than anything else I have come across.

The comments are based on trial and error with 80GB and 320GB versions which saved two installations on Win XP with a custom built PC, and one(so far!) on Vista with an Acer Aspire 5920 laptop, when clean installs from scratch would otherwise have been required.

The laptop had no Windows CDs and relied on serial backups on a second partition on the hard drive, as well as on two post installation backup DVDs, and sets of three and five other backup DVDs which were made later over two years. Life was too short to make another set for six months or so but luckily I got the OneTouch 4 Mini a few weeks ago, which saved the day when the serial backup system subsequently failed completely.

1.) The CD Included with OneTouch 4 Mini
- is only used as a boot disc for system restoration using 'Safety Drill' copies of a whole system
(see 5. and 6. below).
n.b. Maxtor Manager and drivers are not on this CD
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
2.) Maxtor Manager
- When the drive is new, the installation files for Maxtor Manager (a set of utilies), as well as a comprehensive User Manual,are pre-saved as files on the drive itself. This is why the manual strongly recommends copying and saving them on the PC for future use. This is just in case you need to format the drive and then cannot retrieve the files to reinstall the Manager program later.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
3.) Using the OneTouch 4 Mini without extra software
-PCs already have the necessary drivers to run external drives including OneTouch. When it is first plugged in the PC installs the drivers automatically so it can be accessed though its icon in the 'My Computer' window without any need for other drivers, and files can be copied and 'dragged out' or 'dropped in' as usual. However if Maxtor Manager cannot see OneTouch re-installation of drivers or Maxtor manager could be needed, see 8.).
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
4.) Installation of Maxtor Manager
-At first you can agree to this when it is offered automatically when you connect the drive.
- Later, re-installation just requires double clicking on the 'Launch' icon, which is among the file icons on the drive itself, when the drivers may, or may not, still be intact.
chas6_2.jpg
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
5.) 'Safety Drill' Copies
-These are copies of the whole system in its current state, which may be saved onto the OneTouch drive by using the 'Safety Drill' utility,which is only one of the programs in the set of utilities accessed through Maxtor Manager.
- Depending on the remaining capacity, the software may not like allowing less than 100% of the Drive for safety Drill copies and/or tends to fail to save properly if the percentage is changed. e.g. if 80% is already in use for other files and previous Safety Drill copies, and you want to save another copy there may not be room unless 100% is allocated for copies.
When the drive fills up it is unknown whether the automatic deletion of unmarked (for protection) copies works properly, or not.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
6.) Using 'Safety Drill'
-To use it to make a copy, first install Manager and run it, then click on the Safety Drill icon in the row of utility icons across the top of each page.
- In the event of a disaster, full recovery of the full working system to the date of the last or an earlier Safety Drill copy can be achieved.
- This is done by putting the supplied CD in the PC's drive, ensuring that BIOS is set to 'boot from CD' (the default),connecting the drive, restarting the PC to boot from the CD (see 1.above), and following the on-screen instructions to restore from a Safety Drill copy which has been saved on the OneTouch drive.
- The process is simple and progress is documented by clear comments on screen.
- After removing the CD when prompted, the System should be restarted without recourse to the BIOS to reset the boot priority, which should be only be done later once everything has been restored.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
7.) If Maxtor Manager becomes corrupt
-e.g. if Manager ceases to recognise the drive, or if the list of Safety Drill copies contains duplicates, or shows other anomalies, it is time to uninstall and then reinstall it, which usually puts things right.Also see 8.) below, and if you should wish to format the drive as well, see 2.) and make sure you have saved a copy of these installation files from the drive :-
chas6_3.jpg
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
8.) If the OneTouch does not appear
in My Computer
or cannot be found by Maxtor Manager, right click on My Computer icon and select Properties, Device Manager, Disc drives, and expand Disc Drives. There will probably be a yellow overlay over Maxtor drive, to show it has a problem, so right click on it and select 'Choose drivers for this device' to reinstall them. Without going online they seem to be found somewhere locally on the PC to restore function.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
9.) Diagnose or repair disk errors, & check warranty status
- Seatools
is a free diagnostic, repair, and auto-warranty checker program which can be downloaded from Seagate.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
10.) To preserve the Setup Files
Installation of Maxtor Manager is performed by clicking the file marked 'Launch' which can be found amongst the setup files on the OneTouch drive itself, see 2. above. They are not on the CD which is provided.

The files can more easily be identified at first by exploring the OneTouch drive, where they remain unless the drive is formatted. It is a good idea to copy the setup files to PC because no download is available.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I have a Maxtor onetouch 4. I want to use it as an external hard drive. Windows explorer recognizes it but when I try to copy files to it, it says the drive is write protected. I down loaded the Maxtor...


That's because the software it comes with unlocks the drive to do backups. You should be able to format the drive in windows and then it should work fine for your purposes.
Right Click the Drive, Select Format, give it a volume name if you want and select quick format. Leave everything else default.

How do I start making my Maxtor start backing yp


Do you want to create a backup file or do you want to keep your original files saved on your Maxtor? If you want to create a backup file for the files on your computer, type "ntbackup" in the "Run", the backup wizard will automatically start and click "next" > "backup fies and settings" > "Let me choose what to backup" and then select the files and folders you want to backup by click the snap-ins (+ signs) and check mark the files or folders and again "next". In the option "choose a place to save your backup" click "browse" (if you are prompted that the drive A:\ is empty click "cancel") locate your Maxtor directory, click "Ok" and name the backup file something you like, click "next", the backup process will begin with the status monitor. It may take several minutes depending on the files you've selected. That's all. If you wanna restore the backup files, just double click the backup file you've saved and when the wizard opens, select "restore files and settings" and follow the onscreen instructions.
Good luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

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.

I want to backup my computers (4) and have maxtor partitioned and used at purchase time, but now when I connect it I get no prompts or choice of hard drive to back up. How do I go about back up?


You have a varity of option to do your backup depending on the type of backup you want to do.
1 Documents and folders
To backup your document and folders you can just copy the Documents and folders to the external drive.
You could also use the backuo feature of the Operating system you have like windows backup to backup your documents and folders.
2 System backup of your system.
You can not use a copy accross to do the complete backup of your system. You can use the windows backup to do this or a third party backup software.
Windows Back for Windows 7.
Click on Start ----- Controll Panel ----- System and Security ------- Set up Backup ------ Select where you want to save your backup ( the external Drive you connected to your system) in the box ------ Next ----- Choose the files or drive you want to backup and click next ------- Review your backup settings and save settings and run back.

This will save your files to the external drive you added to your system.

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.
