The POWERMAX.EXE utility performs diagnostic read/write verifications on Maxtor/Quantum hard drives. These tests will confirm hard drive integrity. Maxtor recommends this utility for troubleshooting any potential hard drive problem. 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).
- Data removal for security purposes or software corruption.
Maxtor recommends that you run PowerMax on all hard drives to perform diagnostic read/write verifications before considering warranty replacement.
