The Maxtor OneTouch 4 is different from the 4 Plus. I had the basic 4. I took out the one screw on the bottom under the warranty void sticker. Peel off the rubber strips/feet. The case was held together by three clips. I was able to pry the halves of the case apart with a skinny screwdriver an the ones above the USB and power ports didn't give much resistance. Then I pried the clips apart along the top edge of the case, then around the front edge opposite the power/usb ports. The two sides slid apart at that point. The drive lifts out of the case and the one-touch button is loose. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources Maxdor One touch drive- how to open case?
