Why my maxtor hard disk showing SMART Failure?The maxtor is my secondary hard disk drive...


The smart control inside the hard drives is to let you know that a drive is about to fail. If you restart your computer and bring up the BIOS you should be able to shut off the SMART warnings. That wont fix your drive, but at least you wont be bothered ...

I would copy the info off that drive asap and save it. SMART is not always right, but its right most of the time and problems will come.

Best of LUCK

I have a Maxtor 6Y160P0. Had a fault running PC Doctor on the Hard Drive Linear Seek test; HD525-1. Clicked more info: error reading block number x of x. DataError (cyclic redundancy check). Also engine...

I wouldn't give much weight to PC doctor, or most other diagnostic software.

There are many legitimate reasons why a program may not be able read data on a HDD.

If the HDD can be formated, then all the sectors are good. Run your windows defrag, and surface test on the drive

Please solve my other problem...

Seagate/Maxtor has hard drive tools that can recertify your hard drive. Maxblast with powermax or segate tools. Recertification tests the hard drive without corrupting contents.

I would download these and test the hard drives with the manufacturers software instead of software made for generic devices.

I ran a generic diagnostic on a WD 40 gig hd, 15min into it it failed diagnostics, got an RMA from WD sent it back and I tracked results.

They had it 2 min before sending it in for repair. I downloaded their Software and tested another wd drive, 45 secs it took to detect problems, generic software took 22min.

Maxtor connection problem

Just in case other users experience it, we can check and test the hard drive using:
1. Disk Management:
Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Computer Management (please run as administrator; right click it), Disk Management. Is this hard drive info exist in this screen? If it is, then the hard drive is not dead.
2. Test and fix it using Norton Utilities (download and run it):
