Just to be sure of the drive's condition, it would be a good idea to go to the drive manufacturer's website and download the drive fitness utility. That will diagnose your drive for any problems.
for the transfer of the files, just drag n drop from one drive to the next is the best way about it? i would be transferring about 150GB+ of info
maxtor's site doesn't list my HDD model, daimondmax plus 9, any idea where i can get the drive fitness utility?
