Question about Maxtor OneTouch III Mini Edition 120GB External USB 2.0 Portable 120 GB IDE Hard Drive
Instructions I was able to download were helpful enough to get all 3 software programs installed. However, I am confused as to why the maxtor icon appears red and tells me the backup (which I've performed several times now) has failed, yet when I go to Windows Explorer, the g: drive shows all that Maxtor has copied, and I am able to open programs and files from within the g: drive okay. Where can I get to a tutorial or something that helps me understand more about this device, which I was in hopes of using so that I could free up some of my C: drive, which is nearly full on an older desktop computer?
I've solved the problem (no thanks to FixYa, which appears to only want more of my money) by concluding that I have no problem, since I can live with a red icon that tells me my backup failed when in fact windows explorer tells me that my 160GB Maxtor One Touch III Mini Edition has backed up my whole system successfully, and I've been able to access files and sxtart programs in my g: drive, where the backup is stored. I figure it is showing red because I've turned off the feature which does scheduled backups on a calendar, as I prefer to backup on my own irregular schedule.
I only wish that Maxtor would have provided more information in the box to connect me with an online tutorial so that I wouldn't have to reach these conclusions on my own or pay someone to tell me what ought to be available for free, after all.
