The issue here with operating instructions is this:

1. Take your power cable plug it in the wall
2. plug the usb to the computer and follow the instructions on the screen.

This drive is supported by Mac,pc,linux

And they just wasted 33,000 bucks printing those breif instructions and putting it into the box for you.

Now if your having trouble with the drive other then STandard plug and play proceedure then that is where you consult them.

But basically they figure this if you have a computer you know how to hook this thing up to the computer.


what can possiable go wroung during a somple and easy installtion:

1 Dead on arrival
2. Hard drive crash early term
3. Usb to sata controller failure (early on)

www.maxator.com is there web address and your drive has a 3 year warranty.

any questions please ask otherwise please do be considerate and leave positive ratings and feedback for your free answer today.

If you need to re install windows 7, it is best to format the drive and start from scratch, if you need your files, first create a backup on an external drive , and moved your files including, documents and settings folder.

Back up 50% took 10 hours still backing up. should it take this long?


That depends on how much data you are backing up, and the speed of your connection. Also some providers will automatically throttle down your speed once you reach a certain amount of data.The only thing you normally need to backup are documents and pictures. It sounds like you might have started a full system backup that will also include the operating system.

I don't have recovery partition


follow this step and do it. God bless you

  • To create a partition from a new or newly formatted computer, make sure Windows is installed. Load any programs and drivers you would like to keep in case you need to back up to a previous version of your computer's settings.

  • 2

    Install your partition creation software; in this article we will use Norton Ghost. Before creating your partition, disable any anti virus and other scanning software.


  • 3

    Create your partition by going to your ms-dos prompt: from your Start menu, press "Run," and type "cmd" without quotations in the run dialog box. At the dos prompt, type "fdisk" without quotations, and choose option 1 (Create DOS partition or Logical DOS Drive). Set the partition size to 10 GB at press enter.

  • 4

    Open Norton Ghost and follow the instructions to create a recovery partition in the new partition you had just created. The process should take anywhere from one to three hours, depending on the size of the files you are going to back up.

  • 5

    Restart your computer. When done, open Norton Ghost to verify that the Recovery Partition was created.

    Transfer operating system to new hard drive


    You can't transfer an operating system to a new hard drive, you must install it. When you install an operating system, it makes specific files depending on all of your hardware, including your hard drive. Your restore disks should be fine to reinstall Windows on your new hard drive. Just use a backup program to backup all of the data you want to keep since it won't be there on your new drive. Good luck.
