Automate backup on Maxtor hardrive

Hello -
I purchased a Maxtor 250 GB external hard drive some time ago, and would like to know how to automate a daily back-up. I can't find the manual! Currently I copy or drag and drop files, but would like to use it on a daily basis to back-up my entire hard drive.
Thank you in advance for your help!

2 usb plugs which goes where??? maxtor 120gb external hardrive pn9nx2dc-500

You have what is call a USB POWER Y ADAPTER: this is designed to provide extra current to your USB HDD drive from a second PC USB port. Plug the end with two USB connectors to your PC/LAPTOP and the single-ended plug to your drive.
Hope it helps! Let me know how you go.

How to connect my external hard drive to another computer and download all files from my exlernal drive

Connect via USB or other interface...the computer will automatically recognize the Ext Drive in most cases.

Double Click"My Computer" on your desktop or from the "Start" menu.

Look for the new drive---most likely the lowest letter alphabetically.
Copy and paste...unless you have software that can automate the process...
Bear in mind you cannot copy and paste more than 4 Gigs at a time...a file system limitation not an error.
