    Does the Maxtor drive show up in Device Manager?

    If the drive was configured as a dynamic disk, does it show up under Disk Management (right-click on 'computer' and select 'Manage', then select Disk Management in the left-hand pane) as either 'Missing' or 'Offline?'

Go to control panel, administrative tools, computer management, disk management and see if the drive is listed there.

If it is, you need to format the drive and then it will be recognized by windows.

Well, you could create a folder on your c:drive (call it something meaningful) and save all your current stuff to this folder.
Ideally you want all your original saved stuff in one folder, and all your new saved stuff in a different folder on the drive, that way you can manage and navigate around your saved data and understand clearly where it is and where it's from.
Hope this helps!

I can't delete files from my Maxtor 3200 external hard drive

The other comments are not the easiest way to free up space on the drive. The reason you aren't seeing a change in free space is because of a drive error (probably unplugged without unmounting). So First open up disk utilities and fix the hard drive (should only take 1-2 min). After the drive is fixed select erase free space (zero out data is fine for now). This usually takes about 20 min for me with a 120 gig hard drive. This allows you to have the free space without having to move all of those files around (which for me would be a problem because I have 100 gigs used on my drive, which would take forever).

I am able to read a Word file from the external hard disk, but when I edit it and try to save it as the same file I get the message that the document is read only. The same happens when I try to save it...

Try right clicking on the folder that document is in and select PROPERTIES. See if the read only box is ticked. It could be that the entire folder is set to read only.

Very Simple. Just connect the Maxtor External Hard drive to your new laptop. Open Windows Explorer and you will see the Maxtor appearing as a Drive. Access the files from the explorer.
My advice is that create a new folder on the maxtor and then do a backup of your new laptop on to this new folder.
DO the same for your office PC.

Hi, I lost user manual, need to restore files back to computer.

Provided that you can find your external drive using My Computer feature, double click on that drive icon and search the drive for the files you wish to put on the computer drive (C drive). If you right click the file or folder on the Maxtor external drive and then choose copy, you can go to the folder on the C drive that you want to paste them into, select it and then right click the folder icon and choose paste to put them into the folder. To make the process quicker, you might choose to paste all files and/or files from the Maxtor drive onto the computer desktop and then move them around later.

Go to "My Computer".
Right click your drive and select properties.
click the "security" tab.
select one by one and click "remove" for each user.
When all users have been deleted, click on add.
Under the "Enter the object names to select", type "everyone"; click OK.
now, under "Permissions for Everyone", click the check box for "Full Control" for "Allow". Now all the boxes for Allow should be checked.
click OK.
Now you should have access to the drive.

It's important to lose your files from time to time, but you can also use a migration tool to help you, or just pull the drive from the old machine to keep spare in the new machine (and put a fresh drive in the old machine unless you are going to recycle it.)  Imaging the old drive won't work if you have much encryption going on.

  It's simple to observe: Know what you're doing!  Read books on PC operating systems (e.g. bsd and windows) and keep very good track of what you want to preserve and what you could be doing better.

Corrupted file message.can't open 3200

Had something like the same. The contents of an entire folder dissappeared.

I made a backup of all data I needed from the disk, then re-partitioned and re-formatted it. Now it seems to be ok again, but I lost my trust, so it will be a nice 500GB temporary folder for my PC.

from a command line, chkdsk was not able to run. Only at next boot. It started cycling with the same message all the time. Unfortunately I didn't copy the message
