Create the diagnostic (pwrdiag.exe) from the MaxBlast CRrom (it's not the same as the included floppy). Use the newly created floppy to test your drive. If you can't find the CDrom you can download it from Maxtor's site.

if you have a spare 65 gig drive you should create an image of the drive for back-up using norton ghost

or..
better yet

get ontrack easy-recovery
it will let you restore parts of the drive to be stored on a smaller hd so you can burn it to cd and continue getting the rest
