    I have a Maxtor OneTouch III external drive. It is to store a True Image (9) primary backup of various (data) files. I also want to produce a new primary backup file (or perhaps a differential backup file for that primary file) by pushing Maxtor’s OneTouch front button. This Maxtor button can launch an application. For that I need the file and file path to generate the True Image backup function. How do I do it?

    There has been much discussion about this on the Wilder Forum:

    2) OneTouch


    The latest I have seen is in above item 3, a response dated September 20, 2006 from Acronis Support “Re: Maxtor One Touch Button control of True Image Back Up”. This describes creating a shortcut for an Acronis True Image script file to a specified path terminating in a True Image script folder. My questions relate to this Acronis Support response:

    As directed I tried to create a shortcut for the True Image script folder and changed the “Target” field of the shortcut all as directed by Acronis Support. That short cut now sits on my desktop but has not solved my problem. How do I make it work?

    1) My True Image script folder is empty: Do I need to enter a script in this folder? If so what is the script that is to be entered?

    2) Does the script directed by Support to be inserted in the target field have a space in two places as indicated below:
    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Acronis\TrueImage\TrueImageService.exe” /script: “X:\Documents and Settings ……..
    Specifically, is there supposed to be a (single) space in the two areas marked in bold (at .exe” /script and at script: “X )?

    3) My shortcut sits on the Desktop but what do I do with it? What file path do I enter in the Maxtor drive to correctly point to the short cut. More specifically what do I have to do to make True Image run a backup file in the Maxtor - when the OneTouch button is pushed?

    Help would be appreciated. I am not a programmer or computer expert. Thanks.

    Hello Walter,

    Did you create a scheduled task as detailed in this <previous reply>? Doing so should have created an appropriately named .tib.tis file in your "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Acronis\TrueImage\Scripts\" folder. After that, try customizing the OneTouch button to run "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Acronis\TrueImage\TrueImageService.exe" /script: "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Acronis\TrueImage\Scripts\SCRIPT_NAME.tib.tis" and yes, there is a single space before and after the /script: parameter.
