I just purchased a Maxtor One Touch II external hard drive and am looking to set up a bootable copy of my computer in case of a crash.

The program provided to do so, Retrospect Express, is not openning on my computer. The icon bounces twice in the dock and then disappears. The insturctuions also say to turn of "FireVaulting." Could someone explain what this is and where I can go in my computer to turn it off? Also, any ideas on why Retrospect is not running?

Thank you.

FileVault is what you are looking for. It's under Security in the Prefs pane.

To turn off Filevault, go to System preferences->Security and hit the 'turn off Filevault' button.

It could also be that the included version of Retrospect express doesn't support Tiger (yet). You may need an upgrade (quote from dantz.com - makers of retrospect).
