Specs: Windows 7
The Maxtor One-Touch II (250GB) indicates the unit works with Windows XP but says nothing about working with Windows 7. Will the Maxtor One-Touch II (250GB) work with windows 7 or is there an upgrade patch or? Thank you

✔ Best Answer
Are you concerned because you are upgrading to Windows 7? External USB hard drives should not be OS specific. Any automatic backup software might be. I suggest that if you are using Windows 7 with that external you wipe the backup software off the drive and use Window 7 Backup and restore with it instead.

Backup and restore is designed to work with external hard drives.

I had a Maxtor One Touch that I backed up Windows 7. Later it died on me. I took it apart and it turned out the hard drive inside was still good. I still have it, using it as a cloned backup for a Windows XP. (IDE hard drive) It can also be put in an Enclosure that cost about $40.00. That can store information and connect to a computer using the USB.
