My MAXTOR Personal Storage 3200 says Read Only and does not allow me to write anything on it. It has never been used, only once to create two back-up files foe my wife and I, and they are empty but it...

right click open properties, under security and make sure you have FULL ACCESS. and some time the BACKUP Program locks HDDs and you have to open with that program

Try connecting the Maxtor to another computer and if it functions normally, then backup your data. Then try formating the Maxtor on your computer.

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

you have probably suffered a FS crash. You have no choice but the format the drive. (Hope you have a backup) If you dont you will have to run a recover utility like Recover my Files.

Maxtor Personal Storage Unit 3200 - Model U01E100

it makes no difference how old the drive is, unless you transfer the same amount of content everyday and can chart and predict. It  might help to wrap your mind around the actually capacity and extent of files you trasfer and use. If that drive is a 200GB....1 gigabyte is roughly 1 cd and a half. A compact disc can hold 700MB, or gauge it to like a ipod.  So if youre possibly transferring say 2GB per day, you will reach the max of the drive in 3 months?

2GB X 90 days=180GB

If you are using graphic applications, or may want to look towards a 320 GB or 500GB as things only get larger with current computers........Just 3 years ago, who knew what a gigabyte was? Now we own drive in upwards to 1TB ( terabyte ).

keep me posted..
