MAXTOR HARD DRIVE

I have been using my Maxtor hard drive to back up documents over the last year.

On trying to add a new folder on the drive it has stated that this is write protected. I dont remember ever making this amendment.

Any ideas?

Many thanks

    Thanks loads for the help.



    Was all going fine until at the very end of this procedure a window in the centre of the screen comes up to say:



    'unable to save permissions changes on disk



    This media is write protected'



    Is there anyway around this?

Go to "My Computer".
Right click your drive and select properties.
click the "security" tab.
select one by one and click "remove" for each user.
When all users have been deleted, click on add.
Under the "Enter the object names to select", type "everyone"; click OK.
now, under "Permissions for Everyone", click the check box for "Full Control" for "Allow". Now all the boxes for Allow should be checked.
click OK.
Now you should have access to the drive.

Several things could be happening.
1. the hard drive direct drive motor is giving out.
2. the hard drive is full.
3. the hard drive needs to be optimized ( that is defragmented) using the Windows defragment utility. If the drive is large it will take some time to complete.

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.

Try right clicking on the folder that document is in and select PROPERTIES. See if the read only box is ticked. It could be that the entire folder is set to read only.

I backed up my old Dell laptop last year. I bought a new Dell laptop. I want to access the backup on my Maxtor and cannot do it. I want to load it onto my new laptop. How do I do this? I want to back up...


Very Simple. Just connect the Maxtor External Hard drive to your new laptop. Open Windows Explorer and you will see the Maxtor appearing as a Drive. Access the files from the explorer.
My advice is that create a new folder on the maxtor and then do a backup of your new laptop on to this new folder.
DO the same for your office PC.
