Now, when you "copied" the files how did you do it? Are you sure you didn't create shortcuts, then transfer those to the new hard drive?
If you're not sure, try opening two windows, 1 being your "my documents" folder and the other being the "f" drive. Put them side by side. Now highlight all the files you want to copy (hold down the ctrl key on the keyboard to make multiple selection) and once all the desired files are highlighted, drag them over to the other open folder (f drive). This should make independent duplicates of all the files. 
I apologize if i sounded condescending, i'm just unsure of your skill level.

I dropped a short distance my maxtor 500Gb external HD


Open it up, and gently move the pickup arm, see if it got knocked out of place. When it is free, close it up and try again. If it is under warranty, send it back first.

Windows -Delayed write failed. Windows was unable to save all the data for the file D:\$MFT


You've got a "hardware" problem with the disk-drive. Windows cannot write an updated 'MFT' ("Master File Table") to reflect files that you have added/deleted/updated on the Maxtor.

Copy all the files from the Maxtor, e.g., onto another external drive, or "burning" to DVD disks, and then replace the Maxtor disk-drive.

I need to make room on my internal ''C'' drive...was advised to move as many folders as poss to free up space. Have moved Pix, Movies, Doc, Links etc to my WD 500 gb ext HD, but cannot move desktop or...


Have you "emptied" your Recycle Bin?

From the "Start" menu, look in "Accessories".
One of the accessories is a "disk cleanup tool". Run it.
It will also delete all your "Temporary Internet Files" that Internet Explorer has created.

Now that you have "moved" your pictures and movies,
what will you do if your external hard-drive "dies",
taking your _only_ copy of those files to its grave?

It's time to buy a *NEW* "internal" disk-drive, e.g., 400GB for under $100 for a "laptop" disk-drive, reinstall Windows onto it, and copy (not "move") all your files from the external disk-drive to the new disk-drive.

MY external hard disk maxtor is not detected


Is this a new Maxtor external drive? It came with a CD. Run the utility.

If there is no data on it that you want to save, you can also blow away the partition and format it:
Right-click [My Computer]
[Manage]
[Disk Management]
Find your external Maxtor Disk inthe list and / or graph
Right-click on the disk and select either "Format" or "Delete Partition"
(try format first) Use "NTFS quick format"

If you delete the partition, then "Create Partition" and then format.
You can assign a drive letter or accept whatever it assignes (probably Drive D)
*done*

Problem open up my maxtor one touch 500gb to retieve photos


first, recover your files. You will need to use hard drive deleted photo recovery program like Asoftech Photo Recovery, you can follow this video to recover deleted photo

I've had to use it many times in the past but in this case you need to plug that drive into another system as an external drive or slave drive and run the software from there. It will rebuild the drive and hopefully recover the files.

After you get back your files, you can then format the drive and reinstall your system.

Maxtor external hardrive will not boot up onto my mac


Hi,
Try a more reliable brand. Maxtor isn't. You don't want to take chances with your files!
Here are two options:

1 www.carbonite.com this company will back your computer up automatically for 50.00 a year unlimited.

2 here is a much more reliable external drive at the link below.
