I recently got a new hard drive that is now windows 7, before I had windows XP. I only just transferred the usb cable and now every time i tried to back up or save a file to the Maxtor one touch 4 plus, it gave a warning window that said it couldn't perform the function because the disk was damaged or corrupted. I have also checked the drive for any errors by scanning it for any problems but nothing has come up. I just now uninstalled the driver in case I could reinstall it but that is not working because its not recognizing that it was uninstalled. Please help me find another software for this. I also looked online for the software and the Seagate company offers this software for free however, it is only compatible with the Mac OS X systems and not for any windows systems.

Go to control panel and devices and uninstall the Maxtor, restart pc and install proper drivers for windows 7. You can try filehippo see if they got any freeware on that.

According to Seagate's website it informs that the actual software for the drive is located on the drive itself. This is the OneTouch 4 software that I assume you are looking for.

As mentioned above, follow the recommendations and once the drive is detected, you should then follow the following steps:

Hope this helps.

I have a Maxtor Onetouch 4 750gb and am using Windows 7. When I boot up my PC I find that the drive's front light remains constantly on and the drive is unrecognised, but I have found a workaround for this. Unplug the USB cable and the power cable, plug the power cable back in first, then the USB cable and Windows 7 interrogates the freshly connected USB item and finds the drive, which now works perfectly.
