well, i trashed the prog that came with my maxtor.
was the worst software i have ever used, it constantly froze the machine on backup. (dantz retrospect)
now i have 2 programs,- "Acronis true image" that makes a image of the hd, used when all programs, os, updates etc is installed, and makes it easy to start fresh.
and nti backup now! that backup just new files\folders etc 2 times a week.
and the button on the maxtor u can configure to open any program...
