Hi guys, My Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 9 200GB hard drive decided to bite the dirt today. Per tech support, I ran the PowerMax utility which couldn't even access the drive. The drive makes this loud whining noise for about 30 seconds and then becomes unresponsive. I called Maxtor TS back and they said that the drive has to be replaced. It is under warranty, but there are some serious shortcomings to the service provided. First, I have to pay to ship it to them. Second, they will only replace it with a refurbished drive that will have a warranty that ends when my current drive's warranty ends. My questions: 1. Does any other drive manufacturer offer a better warranty (replacement with a new drive.... preferably a newer version than the one that died)? 2. Can anyone recommend a data recovery service? 3. If you have 140 GB of data on the drive, where is that data recovered to? Thanks.
