Back up. Protect your Existing Data
Periodic backup of important data is always a good idea.Whenever your computer is on, there is the potential for losing data on
your hard drive.This is especially true when running disk utilities or any software that directly manipulates your files.
Maxtor recommends that you make a backup copy of the files on any existing hard drives prior to installing the new drive. If
required, this data may then be copied to the Maxtor hard drive after it has been installed in the computer. Refer to your com-
puter user's manual for detailed data backup instructions.
