    Maxtor MaxBlast:     MaxBlast Plus is a one-step, IDE hard drive installation utility. MaxBlast Plus makes hard drive installations and upgrades hassle-free for novices and professionals alike by automatically identifying, partitioning, and formatting any IDE hard drive, making it data-ready in about one minute. MaxBlast Plus supports Enhanced IDE and Fast ATA standards, and breaks the 528 MB, 2.1 GB, 4.2 GB, 8.4 GB & 32 GB storage capacity barriers. DOWNLOAD HERE

Maxblast Plus 2  (must use winzip to unzip)

Maxblast 3 (must use winzip to unzip)

  Instructions for creating a Boot Diskette with MaxBlast Plus: 

  • Copy the MAXBLAST FILE  to your Hard drive. This file can be run at a DOS prompt or in a Windows environment (Windows 3.x, Windows 95A, Windows 95B or Windows 98). The utility to create the MaxBlast Plus diskette cannot be executed from a floppy disk, and cannot be executed under Windows NT or OS/2. 

    A.  To create the Bootable MaxBlast Plus Floppy Diskette: 

    1. Under the Windows environment double click on the MAXBLAST.EXE file. 
    2. Under the DOS environment, type the file name (maxblast) and press [Enter]. 

    B.  The program will prompt you to insert a 1.44 MB 3.5" floppy diskette into your A: drive. Any files on the floppy will be erased during the MaxBlast Plus diskette creation procedure. 

  • Once the program is complete, exit from Windows if applicable, re-boot the system to the MaxBlast Plus diskette created, and the installation process will begin. Make sure you label this diskette as MaxBlast Plus 1.26S. 

  • The MaxBlast Plus Hard Drive Installation program supports Windows NT and OS/2 and will properly set up a drive for these operating systems. 

          Maxtor PowerMax Diagnostic Utility .      The Powermax utility is designed to perform diagnostic read/write verifications on Maxtor/Quantum hard drives.
