Common Problems

Maxtor hard disk drives can suffer from both logical and physical failures. Drives can become infected by viruses, develop corrupt files, have files or partitions accidentally deleted and be reformatted. Occasionally the PCB (Printed Circuit Board) can overheat and burn causing the drive to not spin or boot up. This can typically be detected by the smell. If any type of clicking or ticking noises are heard coming from the drive, power down the device immediately as it could be an issue with the read/write heads. Turning the device back on or continuing to run it may cause further damage to the platter and result in permanent data loss.

FAQs

Why do I need a data recovery professional to retrieve data from my failed Maxtor hard drive?
When it comes to recovering data from a hard drive, you need complete knowledge of drive mechanisms and data recovery processes. Only certified data recovery experts know the best techniques to repair or replace damaged hard drive components, including the read/write heads, the actuator arm assembly, and other delicate parts. Even the local technicians fail to perform hard drive data recovery because they don’t have certified Class 100 Cleanroom labs that are required for opening hard drives. Data recovery engineers create a full copy (“clone”) of your hard drive and utilize specialized software to retrieve your lost files.

How can I format my Maxtor external hard disk drive on a Mac computer?
To safely format your HDD on Mac, you need to first connect the external hard disk drive to the computer by using the USB cable. Now, open Disk Utility> click on the connected external HDD > select the Erase tab. You need to click on the MS-DOS File System under Volume Format and then click on the Erase button. Make sure you click on the Security Options link and move the slider all the way to the left side of the scale. This is an important step because if you don’t move the slider to the right position, your data will be lost.

About Maxtor

Maxtor was founded in 1982 in California by two former employees of IBM. In the early 2000s, it was the third-largest manufacturer of computer hard disk drives. Their first product was sold a year after the founding, and they were able to negotiate offshore manufacturing in Singapore almost immediately. Their first drives used 8 disks and had a capacity of 140 MB, far less than we are used to today. In 1990 they purchased MiniScribe; unfortunately, they had issues with the quality of their designs and were forced to completely redesign them. After financial trouble in 1992, they were forced to sell their drive business to Sequel and closed their establishment in San Jose. In 2000, they acquired Quantum’s hard drive business and jumped back into the industry. They began creating external hard disk drives, but shortly after in 2005 the decision was made to discontinue it. They continued producing their OneTouch USB driveline, which backed up a computer’s entire system with a single button. In 2006 though, Seagate purchased the entirety of Maxtor, and it is now a subsidiary of the much larger corporation.
