Maxtor HD

  John_pier 12:37 09 Oct 04

I have a 10GB hard drive on windows ME. Thinking of getting a Maxtor Diamond Max Plus9 80GB drive and using MaxBlast to transfer my partitions. I will then keep the original drive as a back up. Question - When transfering the partitions can I:
1. Resize partitions on the new drive?
2. Create new partitions?
Any other help or info in this regard would be helpful.

If you purchase an OEM drive then you will get just the bare drive. You will then need to download the Maxblast software from Maxtor website. Check out
all the info beforehand on their FAQ's

for a Maxtor Diamond Max Plus9 HDD you need to
download Maxiblast 3 image and burn it on to a CD this will be a Bootable CD.

You can then use this to boot into the CD and follow the instuctions to do whatever you need to do including coping your existing drive to your new drive or a partion on the new drive.
