    Hello, I've just bought a Verbatim 1TB usb external hard drive which runs with a FAT32 drive. It supposed to be as simple as plugging it in and clicking on the setupX.exe file to install Nero BackItUp and away I go. Unfortunately when I click on the setupX.exe file it tells me there is no default application specified and to choose an application?? Should it not just automatically install the programme from this point. Any advice on how to resolve this would be very much appreciated (this is probably really obvious to many of you out their, but I have no clue!!).

    You're trying to install Windows software (.exe) on Mac. Doesn't work.

    Macs come with Time Machine, located in System Preferences, for automatic backup anyway. So use that.
