|Unless full recovery is built-in, which is a fairly recent development, I did not realise it was available at all. Its sole purpose is to back up files, and it ... Price I guess Its unusable. It worked for less than 6 months before it corrupted everything on it.|

Step 3: Select Never Delete for copies you dont want overwritten. Step 4: Click Apply to save your selections and return to the SafetyDrill window.
Restoring Your System from a SafetyDrill Copy
If your system crashes, use your SafetyDrill System Boot CD to reboot your system. Then you can use the SafetyDrill copies stored on your OneTouch drive to restore your entire PC boot drive system. To restore your system from a SafetyDrill copy, Step 1: Install a new computer hard drive that is equal to or larger than your old drive. If your new drive is larger than the original drive from which you made the SafetyDrill copy, the extra portion of the new drive will not be partitioned during the system restore from the SafetyDrill copy. Step 2: Make sure your BIOS Boot Priority is set to Boot from CD. (Refer to your system manual for detailed instructions.) Step 3: Connect and turn on your OneTouch 4 drive BEFORE you reboot your computer. Step 4: Insert the SafetyDrill Recovery CD and wait for your system to reboot.
The Maxtor SafetyDrill Startup Options window opens:
Maxtor SafetyDrill Startup Options
Step 5: Use the arrow keys to make sure Maxtor SafetyDrill Recovery [CD] is selected. Step 6: Wait 30 seconds for your computer to restart or press Enter to restart immediately. After the restart, the Maxtor SafetyDrill boot screen opens:
Maxtor SafetyDrill Boot Screen
When your system has booted, the Maxtor SafetyDrill Restore window opens:
Maxtor SafetyDrill Restore Window
Step 7: In the Maxtor SafetyDrill Restore window,
(a) Select a language. (b) Select a SafetyDrill copy to restore. (c) Use the date stamp and the image information provided to the right of the
selected copy to select which SafetyDrill copy to restore.
(d) Select a PC drive to restore to. (e) Click Restore.
A warning window cautions you that all data on your hard drive will be overwritten if you proceed:
Presumably youve just installed a new drive, so nothing is stored on it.
Step 8: Click OK. After the system has been restored, a window confirms a successful restore:
SafetyDrill Restore Confirmation
Step 9: Click OK. Your computer shuts down automatically and the CD tray opens. Step 10: Remove the SafetyDrill Recovery CD before your computer automatically restarts in two minutes. Step 11: After your system has been restored, restore your backed up files and folders from your OneTouch 4 drive. See Backing Up and Restoring Folders for more information.
Frequently Asked Questions
These are common, frequently asked questions about the OneTouch 4. For further information, refer to the Seagate Knowledge Base at support.seagate.com. 1. What are the minimum Operating System requirements for the OneTouch 4? Microsoft Windows: XP Professional, XP Home, XP Media Center Edition* Vista Home Basic, Vista Home Premium, Vista Business, Vista Ultimate*
* 32-bit Operating Systems only
Macintosh: Mac OSX 10.4.9 and newer No other Operating System versions are supported. Although other Operating Systems may recognize the OneTouch 4 as an external storage device, the OneTouch 4 installation software will not work. 2. What do I do if my computer doesnt recognize my OneTouch 4? It can take your computer up to two (2) minutes to recognize a OneTouch 4. If your computer does not see the drive after several minutes, try the following: Verify that power and interface cables are properly connected, OneTouch 4 Mini Users: Make sure to connect the interface cables in the following sequence:
1 Power + Data 2 Power Only 3 Type B Interface directly to the OneTouch 4 Mini
Windows Users: Make sure the OneTouch 4 drive is recognized in My Computer in XP (Computer in Vista), Disk Management, or Device Manager. Macintosh Users: Make sure the OneTouch 4 drive is mounted on the Apple Desktop and is recognized in the System Profiler. If youre connecting through an USB Hub, make sure its a powered USB Hub. Did you set a DrivePass password on the OneTouch 4 and then move it to another computer? If so, the other computer cannot see the locked OneTouch 4. You must either install the Maxtor Manager on the other computer and unlock the drive or return the OneTouch 4 to the original system and disable DrivePass through the Maxtor Manager. 3. Can I back up my entire system using the OneTouch 4's Backup feature? No. The Backup feature is designed to back up your data (documents, pictures, music, videos, etc.). The Backup feature cannot back up your entire computer. Windows OneTouch 4 Plus and OneTouch 4 Mini users can use SafetyDrill to back up their
computers. (SafetyDrill is not available on the Macintosh.) OneTouch 4 users can use a third-party or Operating System (Vista Business or Vista Ultimate) backup solution. 4. What types of files and folders cannot be backed up or synchronized using the Maxtor Manager's Backup and Sync features? The Backup and Sync features cannot back up or sync these file and folder types: System Attributed Files/Folders (Operating System and/or Program files), including hidden files/folders. Personal Mail Files created with Outlook, Outlook Express, Windows Mail, and Macintosh Mail Financial Files/Data Other user data files/folders The Maxtor Manager's Backup and Sync utilities are designed to back up or sync a single user's Windows XP or Mac OS X Documents folder or Vista Personal User folder. 5. Is there any way to recover a lost DrivePass or Maxtor Encryption password? No. There is no way to recover a lost password. If you lose a DrivePass password, you must erase the OneTouch drive in order to use it again. Erasing the drive will erase all data stored on it. If you lose a Maxtor Encryption password, you must delete the encrypted folder. This will delete all data stored within the encrypted folder. Seagate strongly recommends that you create passwords that are easily remembered or record passwords and store them in a secure location. 6. Can I use my OneTouch 4 without installing the software? Yes. The OneTouch 4 can be used as an add-on, external storage device for storing data. However, if you wish to use the feature-rich utilities such as Backup, you must install the Maxtor Manager software included on your OneTouch 4 drive. 7. Can I use my OneTouch 4 with both Macintosh and Windows computers? No. Windows and Macintosh File System formats do not play well together. Windows XP and Vista formats use the NTFS File System, while Macintosh uses the HFS+ File System. Windows cannot see a drive prepared for use with a Mac. While Mac OS X can see a Windows-formatted drive, it cannot write files to it. So theres no safe way to use your OneTouch 4 drive with both Operating System platforms. 8. Whats the simplest way to transfer files to my OneTouch 4? Transfer files and folders to your OneTouch 4 using standard Windows/Macintosh Copy and Paste or Drag and Drop methods. Refer to either Windows or Apple Help files or Knowledge Bases for file transfer procedures. 9. The OneTouch 4 does not have a power switch. How do I disconnect the drive from my computer?
