Hi, I'm backing up the contents of my Powerbook G4 (mac - purchased in '05) on the Maxtor One Touch III external HD. It's been going for a day and a half now. Admittedly the computer is nearly full of photo files, but should I expect it to take that long? I need to use my computer, and it appears that it's not even close to finishing up. Is this typical or does the excessive time indicate a problem? thanks, Darlyne [email protected]


No! \015\012It should not take that long. Your trouble is it's a Maxtor drive. Maxtor all but went out of business. Seagate has bought the troubling company. Though Maxtor still runs a web site. I suggest you download Maxtors testing software. ... PC Desktops
