Info
The Powermax utility is designed to perform diagnostic read/write verifications on Maxtor/Quantum hard drives. These tests will determine hard drive integrity. The Powermax utility is effective on all ATA (IDE) hard drives with a capacity greater than or equal to 500 MB. Maxtor recomMends the use of this utility for troubleshooting potential hard drive problems. These problems include, but are not limited to the following:
• Potential hard drive surface problems (e.g., bad clusters, bad sectors, partitioning/formatting problems, etc.)
• Drive recognition problems (e.g. hard drive that is not recognized by the operating system).
• Software removal
Note: Powermax v 4.21 will not detect ATA or SATA hard disks connected to embedded, or add in RAID controllers, Nvidia Force 3, Force 4, VIA KT 600 and KT 800 chipsets. If the hard disk is connected to an unsupported controller, it will have to be moved to an alternate system, or controller for diagnosis. Please check the Powermax download page periodically for updates. Beginning March 1st 2005 all versions of Powermax prior to v 4.21 will no longer be supported. Maxtor recomMends that you update to version 4.21 before testing your hard disk.
