External Drive Backup Tags: External Drive Backup Storage Last response: November 10, 2009 11:36 AM in Storage Share gigi169 November 9, 2009 10:30:35 AM I have a Maxtor Personal Storage 3200 external drive and have forgotten how to back up on it. When you plug in the USB isn't a backup utility box supposed to show up on the computer? Also I had some files I was trying to read from a previous computer and XP operating system back up. Now I have Vista and I can't read those files. More about : external drive backup Jonmor68 a b G Storage November 10, 2009 2:36:31 AM Maxtor is now Seagate, I can't find your model there.
