Easiest, quickest and least expensive way is to get a USB external drive. They come in a variety of sizes. Don't get one of those auto backup ones, just a plain old drive without any software on it.

It looks like the max size was originally 120GB but I am not sure what BIOS updates may have been done to increase that. If you get a larger drive, you may have to make partitions of smaller sizes.

Windows xp shows hard drive as 30g. I have diamond max plus 9 120gb model 6y120PO s/n y25W76E bios shows maxtor 6y120PO capacity 33821mb


It is probably partitioned. Right click on "my computer" select "Manage" and then look at the disk manager. You will find that the rest of the drive is there, but un partitioned and un formatted.
