    My hard drive crashed and was not recoverable. I have been using Maxtor One Touch II as an automatic back up which appears to have been working fine. I have an extra computer which is:
    HP_Pavilion, Windows XP, Media Center edition, version 2002, AMD Athlon 64 processor
    I uploaded the maxtor software unto this computer, plugged in the Maxor One Touch, but when I go to restore, there are no restore points on this computer.
    When I go to the J drive and open up the Maxtor files, I can see all the back up files there, but how do I transfer them onto this other computer since the original computer is no longer usable? I made a copy of these files onto my C drive into a separate folder, but again, they are encrypted, so I cannot open them.
