One Touch 4 backup Drives are the best, no data encryption.
The Maxtor One Touch 4 is my first and only choice in a backup drives. I love it because 1) the data is not encrypted thus I can transfer it to any computer. 2) One Touch 4 software makes it all possible.
What I don’t like is that the drive are formatted FAT32 which give it problems with a PC. I copied the software off the drive and formatted it NTFS and the problems go away. Most of the drives I have purchased on eBay have had the Software removed or at least partly removed, it contains several files.
I have purchase 3 of these off eBay, all are in service, I love them.

One Touch truly is easy to install and use
We have both macs and pc's, so the one touch sounded great - comes with cd with software for either/both platforms. You must choose one, insert the cd into your computer and within a few minutes you have a huge storage drive. We chose to place it on our Mac. Of course, with all drives, once you load the software, and save something to it, it can be moved to another platform, (ie a mac to a pc) but you'll loose everything on it as you have to use the cd and reformat, wich of course wipes the info. But for a dedicated storage drive, this is a great price, was $25 cheaper than Wal-Mart, and does not slow you down when saving to it. It's great - will hold a lifetime of music or a library of info. No matter what program, info is retrieved on the fly, and you don't sit waiting for the little hourglass to catch up. Finally an external drive worthy of my newer mac. So Happy!!!!Read full review

Great Little External HDD!
I needed something to backup my music files, but this unit takes it one step further - it creates a mirror image of your hard drive & in the event of a failure can be utilized to recover everything on a new hard drive eliminating the need for OS re-installation, etc. It is very fast & quiet & takes up very little room on my table. The backup settings are customizable so you can set it up however you want. Since it's so small you can use it with several PC's if necessary. It can be hooked up via either USB or Firewire. Haven't run across any "cons" to speak of to this point. Happy with purchase.

Couldn't be better!
Right out of the box, it was easy setup, and even easier to install & run the first backup. Admittedly, I was a little worried--a lot of tech stuff seemingly requires a Phd to run--but this was a piece of cake. Literally, within two minutes of unpacking, it was performing it's first backup, snip snap. And, what's really sweet, is that with one touch you can back up anytime you want, or set it so it backs up at the same time each day. Very pleased with my purchase.
