Customer Question

I changed my computer on 04 04 2014 and had been backing files using Maxtor One touch 4 Mini. Maxtor is plugged in and the light is on and I had assumed it was backing up. However it has not been working since 2014. i hve also recently upgraded from Windows 8.1 to 10. how can this external hard drive be reactivated?
