Question about Maxtor Hard Drive
I was looking on http:// freeware arena.com and noticed a download that claims to be able to recover data from almost anything.
Virus?? Have you checked?
HDD's tend to go bad as you are describing, "bad sectors" ever increasing, even after format more turn up. Not good. New disk required?

Tips for a great answer:
you could run the chkdsk utility
click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which will scan for and attempt to recovery any bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive there are many ways of running the chkdsk utility
click start right click on my computer you should see your drive usually C: select properties click tools check now tick both boxes automatically fix files and scan for and attempt recovery on any bad sectors
then select check now, start should schedule this task when restart
it will only schedule on restart if its the Primary hard drive with an operating system on it
do not do anything while the chkdsk utility is in progress any input may damage your computer
for USB drives click start control panel administrative tools computer management disk management right click on your drive select properties click tools you should see click check now click start two boxes
automatically fix files and scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors place then a tick in both boxes then select check now start
you might tick one box then return after its finished the first repair then return and tick the second box you should not do anything while the chkdsk utility is in progress any input may damage this drive
I found that you get best results by ticking one box then returning after it has finished then tick the other box There are also Data Recovery programs that might be very helpful to recover your important information.
