Definitely YES, when it's new. When I got it, the instructions said something about automated backup system included. I formatted the whole drive NTFS and it functions as a normal, empty, external drive. Nothing special runs, nothing eats up computer resources and works fine as a plain old drive. Standard windows drivers work fine in recognizing the drive.
I have an older Maxtor One touch external which has been quite reliable for years (and is still going strong) but am wondering if anyone knows a way to "disable" the one touch hardware side of it and simply use it as an external hard drive.

Maybe. The one I have can't easily be opened without doing serious damage.
Remove it from the enclosure...attach directly to system...find out if it's the enclosure or the drive.
