I have been using a Maxtor one touch 4 on my old HP computer with XP and it was working just fine. Yesterday the power was off and on several times, and now when I open the hard drive to do a back up it says"backup not available, make sure your hard drive has NTFS formatted partition".
I have changed nothing, and have no idea why this error is appearring now after using it for so long. I am not sure whether to uninstall the Maxtor and plug it in again to reinstall it or not.
It says I have an updated version of the software, did not want to try downloading drivers without asking advice. Also ran a driver test, said it was ok. Puzzled as to why this is suddenly not working for me.
