Senior Technical Consultant

Maxtor shows zero volume where 100gb of a 120gb drive existed. I heard clicking sounds and backed up only 20.2 gb before total failure. Is there a motor kit that I can use to repair

That's because the software it comes with unlocks the drive to do backups. You should be able to format the drive in windows and then it should work fine for your purposes.
Right Click the Drive, Select Format, give it a volume name if you want and select quick format. Leave everything else default.

Drive only reports 56gb to partition - missing 100gb! How do I access the remaining space?


Click Start
Right-mouse click "My Computer".
Click "Manage".
Expand the "Storage" part of the tree.
Click "Disk Management".
View the diagram for your disk-drive.
Does it show the 56GB partition, followed by 100GB of "unallocated" space,
or does it show one (approximately) 160GB partition?

If the former, backup all the files in the partition (copy to an external disk-drive, or copied to DVD-recordable disks, or to another computer).
Then, use "Disk Management" to delete that "small" partition, and to define a new partition that "spans" the entire volume, and to initialize the partition.
Then, copy the "saved" files back onto the drive.

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.

I have forgotten my password to access my Maxtor One Touch 120GB


Google for Hiren's bootdisk, burn it and boot with it. Or, it's the password for windows you have forgotten, right ?

Computers do not recognize Maxtor


This isn't a solution, but will give you more information about whether you can recover the data. If your computer recognizes the drive when you insert it, but doesn't assign it a letter, you can probably recover much of the data.

For XP: Click on "Start"-"Settings"-"Control Panel", and select "Administrative Tools". If you don't have that menu, there are other ways to get into the control panel, depending on how you've configured your OS.

Click on "Computer Management" (on the right window), then "Disk Management" (on the right again). This shows a picture of each of the hard drives on your system. The "Volume" shows the letter assigned. If you unplug the hard drive, and then plug it back it, you can easily tell which volume is being added or removed.

If you can right click on the volume, it may be a simple matter of running "checkdisk" to fix any errors (click properties, and see if that is an option in the "Tools" tab). If all the options are disabled, the drive has been corrupted. However, you may still be able to recover the data with a data recovery program (I have R-Studio, but there are a lot of others out there). If the drive doesn't show up at all, you'll probably need a professional.

Note: If you have a lot of drives, you may just need to free up a drive letter to be able to see the drive. You can right click, and if "Change drive letter/path" is enabled, try that.
