You will need to format all the partitions on the disk to make free space. This will erase all of your data, so you will be able to use your disk at full capacity.

You can format your partitions via Windows Explorer, just right-click a partition and choose Format....

Be aware that if you format a system partition you will have to reinstall operating system.

I got a new computer and need to install Maxtor on my new machine. How do I do thei?


If you mean the Maxtor disk utility that comes with raw hard drives, it is NOT necessary to install this in order for the drive to work. If the new computer already has an OS on it and is working, what part of the Maxtor utility is it that you think you need? The OS has all the tools you would need to work with the disk. Or you could always download a 3rd party app to do the specific task. If this is regarding an external drive, again the new computer ( and OS) will have whatever tools you would need to work with the disk. In fact you should only have to plug the external disk into the USB port and the new computer will find it and ask how you want to use it, etc. The Maxtor disk utilities that came with raw drives is pretty much obsolete when used with a current Windows or Mac OS.

Maxtor External drive is "clicking"


No, the defect is in the actual hard disk inside your unit - it's the clicking of death.
There is nothing left to do, the unit is unfixable. Just get a new one.

Cannot get external hard drive to work


- Make sure that the hard drive (HD) is properly connected to the computer.

- Try connecting it to a different computer to make sure that the HD is the problem.

- Check the Disk Management in your computer to see if the HD could still be detected. Once detected, reformat the HD and it should work again.

To check the Disk Management:

NOTE: Make sure that the external HD is connected and turned ON.

1. Right-click "My Computer" (XP) or "Computer" icon (Vista)
2. Select Manage and click on "Disk Management".
3. From the Disk Management, you will see a drive letters
4. Write down all the drive letters and then disconnect the Maxtor HD from the computer.
5. If there's a drive letter that disappears, then that is your Maxtor HD.
6. Reconnect the Maxtor HD and reformat it. You may right-click the drive letter and there's an option to format the HD.

If you're hearing a clicking sound while the HD is turned on, mostly, it's already defective.

Have a great day!

If you can get a 3rd party disk utility like DiskWarrior because if the disc information has corrupted the computer cannot see it, the utility will re write this and if the drive is OK it will re appear

Code 10. The device cannot start


Go to, Start > Settings > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Computer Management > Disk Management. See if the drive starts under Disk Management.
I sounds like the drive enclosure is shot. You may need just a case. Click this link: http://cgi.ebay.com/USB-2-0-2-5-EXTERNAL-HARD-DRIVE-ENCLOSURE-CASE-NEW_W0QQitemZ120099119775QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item120099119775

Or you can get the whole unit and swap out the drives so you won't lose your data.

Memory dump


Make sure your computer meets the minimum system requirements for running Windows XP if this is an upgrade - I had a computer that technically met the requirements, but boy did it run slow after I upgraded from Windows ME to Windows XP. If your hard drive contains no programs, information that you can live without, then you can completely reformat the hard drive and start over from scratch. If it does contain important programs, burn them to CD or DVD - and make sure that your computer can read the files after you are done burning - and then reformat your hard drive.

Maxtor one touch iii mini


You have a possible corrupted file. Open My Computer and right-click the drive icon. Click PROPERTIES in the menu. Click TOOLS. Click CHECK NOW. Click a check into the AUTOMATICALLY FIX FILE SYSTEM ERRORS box. Click START. The OS may tell you a reboot is required.
If all else fails, dump the data to some other storage device and use DISK MANAGER to delete the partion, make a new partition and format.

Is it of the same config? Are you hot swapping while the network is active? Do you have any redundant drives on the server?
