Question about Maxtor OneTouch 4 500GB External USB 2.0 Hard Drive

1 Answer

I am looking to reload my files from a Maxtor One touch 4 750 GB external USB - I was under the impression that the drive had been backing up files for the last year - I can only find files from September 2008 - is there something I am missing I had assumed all of my files were being backed up on w weekly basis. Can I be selective in accessing files - I am especially interested in my Outlook and Word files.

    I have not attempted to change any dates - somewhat gun shy to mess up files - What is the correct reload/restore app program to use? I am using Windows XP is there a stage by stage step by step cheat sheet for this proceedure? Thanks for the insight.

Have you changed any of the files since backing them up? If not that is why they show a Sept 2008 date. yes you can be slective, depending on which backup and restore app you are using. Effectively only highlight the ones you want to restore and then activate the restore process.

Hi there i hav ea maxtor onetouch 4 mini 120 gb.


Remove the hard drive from the Maxtor case, purchase an USB hard drive adapter case, and install the hard drive inside this case. Then you can connect this to the computer's USB port and if the hard drive is OK then this computer will detect it as an external USB hard drive, then you can open the folders and files and back them up.

Hi, I lost user manual, need to restore files back to computer.


Provided that you can find your external drive using My Computer feature, double click on that drive icon and search the drive for the files you wish to put on the computer drive (C drive). If you right click the file or folder on the Maxtor external drive and then choose copy, you can go to the folder on the C drive that you want to paste them into, select it and then right click the folder icon and choose paste to put them into the folder. To make the process quicker, you might choose to paste all files and/or files from the Maxtor drive onto the computer desktop and then move them around later.
