    The Maxtor one-touch models, comes with a EMC Retrospect startup item to run its backup software. I tend to disable this functionality, as it often is not updated for the operating system actually being run and can cause problems with setting up. Instead, I use Shirt-Pocket Superduper for backing up. I'm not sure the Maxtor is bootable on a MacBook Pro, but when you first get it, you'll want to reformat it with Disk Utility to have a GUID partition for optimized backing up for the MacBook Pro.
    If you plan to use it with a Windows machine, you'll not be able to use it for full backing up, but at least data files will store on it, if you format it FAT32. Your alternative is still to format it GUID, but get MacDrive by Mediafour for your Windows machine to be able to read the drive, or network it use the built-in networking of the Mac as described here:

    If you aren't, well the above paragraph is just extra non-essential info!

  • I transferred data from my external hard drive to my restored Mac Book Pro via migration assistant and now my external hard drive in time capsule has red minus signs. How do I get rid of that without getting rid of any of my data?

    I used Migration Assistant to transfer my data from my external hard drive via Time Capsule to my restored Mac Book Pro. When I now go into Time Capsule I there are red minus signs in the corner of all the folders that are contained in my back up. How do I get rid of this and access my previous back-ups?

    Select the drive and Finder > Get info and at the bottom "ignore permissions on this volume"
    You can copy the files, but the ownership on the files still belongs to the other user account, once your done copying, then perform a #6 Reset Users Permissions and that will set all the ownership to that account.
    ..Step by Step to fix your Mac
    Another method is to copy the entire folder, then change it's permissions.

  • I just put a solid state hard drive in my mac book pro and used super duper to copy the hard drive and move the data over to thew new ssd, but most of my music isn't in iTunes when I turned it on? How do I get my music to show up in my new drive?

    Many thanks lllaass,
    The Touch Copy third party software for PC's is the way to go it seems and although the demo is free, if you have over 100 songs then it costs £15 to buy the software which seems not a lot to pay for peace of mind. and restoring your iTunes library back to how it was.

    To reinstall the original OSX in your rMBP, boot the MBP using the COMMAND-OPTION-R keys.  The display should show a picture if the planet earth and you will be connected to the Apple servers.   Make certain that you have a solid Internet connection and follow the instructions.

  • Hi All, I recently bought a Mac Book Pro and transferred all my photos from my hard drive onto the Mac. I realised that there were some folders which didn't have the camera information embedded in the files and these files refuse to open on iPhoto. HELP!!

    Hi All, I recently bought a Mac Book Pro and transferred all my photos from my hard drive onto the Mac. I realised that there were some folders which didn't have the camera information embedded in the files and these files refuse to open on iPhoto. I know that the folders that have the problem were not transferred to the hard drive via a photo transfer application (I have a Canon camera) but I simply copied them out of the photo card and onto my old PC.
    Is there some way I can open these pictures on my Mac? They work fine on a PC.

    Thanks for your reply.
    The files don't open in preview either. In preview I get the error message 'The file "xxxx_xxx.jpg" could not be opened. It may be damaged or use a file format that Preview doesn't recognize'. The folders with these un-openable pictures do not even get imported into iPhoto. When I try to import them I get an error message about the files being unreadable.
    The color profile information on the un-openable files is not visible but I see that all the other files from my old drive are RGB.

  • HELP Maxtor One Touch III 1TB External Fails after upgrade to 10.5.7

    Hello,
    I was using a Maxtor One Touch III for my iTunes music (over 400gb) and when I upgraded to 10.5.7 last week my Intel Mac Pro froze several times, causing me to hard power down the computer.
    My External drive now makes a clicking noise when it starts up for about 30 seconds, then stops, power light stays flashing. It does not mount.
    I have tried Disc Utility (repaired permissions and repaied main internal drive after update), Disc Warrior and now Data Rescue II. All are not seeing the external, and I have tried it via both firewire and USB.
    I see other people are experiencing this with other drives, has anyone had this issue with an external like mine? I had over 400GB of music, movies, etc on this 1TB drive.

    ok here's where I'm at with this debacle.
    I've checked my internal disk for reduncancy and have decided just to wipe it, replaced it with a 1TB SATA and used time machine to roll my data back on there. That will take care of the freezing, etc. I also had some issues with some of the 14GB of RAM I had installed (6GB of it was not "Mac Approved" but worked), but I think helped caused this issue of freezing with the update. So now down to 8GB of RAM (nuts!)
    As for my external maxtor. I took apart the enclosure and mounted the SATA drives internally in my mac pro, then used Data Rescue II to get what remaining items I could off of one of the drives. The other drive is toast and just continues to keep clicking, etc. I thought by eliminating the maxtor power supply and mounting it internally I may have better luck. Not so much.
    To your question about reporting to apple- I spoke to several tech specialists I know very well @ Apple and all were very helpful but most agreed that once the drive begins clicking and not mounting, there is a good possibility of your data having been lost. So aside from using a "Data Recovery" company and exhausting thousands of dollars, I am resolved to the fact I will just take the music I was able to recover (about 1/3rd of what was lost) and Ill spend the next few months scanning in discs I have, and contact apple about re-downloading purchases.
    Moral of the story- BACK UP YOUR DATA! I had everything else (other than my 400+GB of music) backed up in about 3 places including time machine. Thank GOD since I have 250 GB of photos which I wouldnt be able to fathom losing.
    If you had the same problem and were able to resolve I am envious, so far this has taught me not only to back up EVERYTHING but not to jump on the update bandwagon until all of the bugs are gone.
    In the process I have lost hours of time but was able to learn more than I ever wanted to know about hard drives.
    Keep us updated if you get resolution.

  • My hard drive on my Mac Book Pro failed last week.  I replaced the hard drive today and had to use my snow leopard disc that came with the computer to get teh thing going.  I was running Mt Lion which I had purchased last year on the old dr

    The hard drive on my Mac Book Pro failed last week.  I just put a new Samsung SSD in this thing and had to load the Snow Leopard OS that came with the computer.  I had Mt. Lion on the old drive that I had purchased last year but no boot disc made.  I have made several attempts to get the Mt lion soft ware on the computer but the Apple store does not have it only mavericks but my Snow Leopard version is too old for it so I cant get it either.  How do I get something to run the software that I had on the old drive?

    Unfortunately I lost my life and am trying to rebuild.  Isn't the technical era great.
    Backup, backup, backup
    As a minimum, use 3-2-1 (or even more)
    3 copies of your data (original copy counts as 1)
    2 different backup utilities/storage formats (protects from bugs in the software)
    1 copy off-site (protects against theft, fire, and natural disaster)
    More backup copies are even better.
    Backup disks are cheap compared to the lost of personal data that does not exist anywhere else.

  • Maxtor One Touch III not showing up on Mac OSX or Windows

    ok so i have this Maxtor one touch III external hard drive that i used to use with my XP computer a few years ago... its 500 GB. so i plug it in to my Mac and install the software and it doesn't show up on my desktop or my disk utility. although, it does show up in my system profiler. so, it didn't work for mac... then i went onto my parallels account that has windows 7 on it and it still doesn't show up. what can i do to fix this?

    Hi,
    all this, with the exception of the Maxtor software, should indicate a no-problem with that HD.
    Personally I have always avoided the provided software, since it is not needed for external HDs.
    If you have access to a Windows PC try connecting the HD there and see what comes up.
    And if you don't have valuable files on that HD, you might repartition it there as well.
    Could be a rare case of a 'dynamic disk' http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314343/en-us which is something that Macs can't handle.

  • What format should I use for Maxtor  One Touch III external hard drive

    I'm not sure if I'm on the right forum section, but hopefully you can help. I just got a Maxtor One Touch III external hard drive with the firewire 400/usb 2.0 port. I installed the cd and followed the manual and it told me to format it. I went to disk utility and went to the "erase" section, but now it wants me to choose the type of format: mac os extended (case-sensitive), mac os journaled, mac os (case-sensitive, journaled) and so on.... Can anyone tell me what those formats mean/do, and what is the best one to use? Thanks!

    Case sensitive is really if you are using some old UNIX programs that you have brought the source over to OS X and compiled them. And the UNIX programs have to expect a case-sensitive file system.
    I'm betting this isn't the case... or you'd know what a case sensitive file system is.
    So go with HFS+ Journaled

  • Leopard and Maxtor One Touch III Turbo - changing RAID setup

    Hi-
    So I just picked up a Maxtor One Touch III Turbo (1.5TB) - installed the Maxtor One Touch Manager, and have tried to change the RAID Setup to Raid 1.
    The Maxtor OneTouch Manager software does not respond - it is set by default to RAID 0 (not ideal).
    I installed the update to the software from Maxtor (now Seagate) - but still no dice.
    Has anyone had any success using the Maxtor One Touch Manager to change the HD from RAID 0 to RAID 1 on Leopard?
    Thanks.

    Ok so I have not received a response from Seagate yet but after some additional reading in the forums I decided to plug my drive into an iMac, that I have not yet upgraded to Leopard, and BAM it works fine.
    All I installed was the updated Intel version of the OneTouch Manager, not the entire CD. The RAID change works perfect and all tests passed.
    It appears that it is just not compatible with Leopard.
    The only concern I have is when that when I upgrade my iMac and then not have the ability to test the drives on my MacBook Pro if one of the drives appears to or goes bad.
    I will still follow up with Seagate and if anything comes of it I will let you know.

  • The touch pad on my Mac book Pro is very sensitive and causes changes without hardly touching it. Can this be changed or does it need replacement?

    The touch pad on my Mac book Pro is very sensitive and causes changes without hardly touching it. Can this be changed or does it need replacement?

    Touchpads are just that, touchpads.
    You touch it and something happens unfortunately, you can't rest your fingers on it while your waiting to do something else or it triggers a response.
    You either have to train yourself to remove your fingers and keep them suspended, causing wrist, arm and hand pain, or plug in a standard mouse where nothing happens until you press the button, like years of ergonomic experience has shown is a much superior method.
    Touchpads are likely less expensive to produce and breakdown less often under warranty, so just like less expensive to produce glossy screens, it's a cost cutting measure they were  incorporated into our devices and required users to adapt to sweeps, gestures and other useless actions for little benefit.
    I've owned my Early 2011 MacBook Pro for a year now and have only used the trackpad once, the mushy keyboard perhaps only a couple of dozen times. Preferring external devices where I can rest my digits and nothing happens until I apply pressure or use a scroll wheel.
    Needless to say my keyboard area is in brand new condiiton, remains covered from the original packaging, protects against dirt and spills too.
    Mac's keyboard and trackpad area tend to wear out pretty fast, like in about 3 years, making one consider getting a new machine long before it physically fails.

    Welcome to the Apple Community.
    You can purchase Lion from the Mac App Store. You will need to meet the requirements for Lion, but the Mac App Store will tell you whether your Mac is capable of running Lion or not.

  • Maxtor One Touch III won't Mount

    Similar problem to others. Hard drive won't mount on computer despite being able to identify it within the Airport utility. I have tried numerous suggestions already listed including: Hard Resetting multiple times the Express, Reformating Hard Drive, Restarting computer, Using different computers. My external hard drive WILL MOUNT if I do a direct USB connection into the computer.

    I just set up my new AirPort Extreme Base station,
    and I can confirm that it DID mount my 500 GB Maxtor
    One-Touch III which I purchased this week.
    I am using 'n' only on 5GHz.
    I had to open up the AirPort Disk Utility. Then a
    window popped up asking for a password. I used the
    password that I set to make changes to the Airport
    base station - NOT the password you use to access the
    network.
    I am copying stuff to it now. I was hoping it would
    be faster, to be honest. 2GB has taken 13:30 to
    transfer. According to my math....thats about
    2.5MB/sec.
    Thank you for the response. I am unfortunately am not asked for a password. I am not however using your configuration as I have an older laptop that does not have a 'n' card.
