    I am building a system with 2 120Gb SATA drives from Maxtor. Their website
    strongly recommends using their Maxblast software to format and partition
    the
    drives. Previously I have always used fdisk (or gdisk) with Win98 and Disk
    Manager in 2000 and XP. So, are there any advantages to using Maxblast or is
    it some kind of
    proprietary overlay which could cause problems later?

    Thanks. That confirms my gut feeling. I'll stick with the native XP tools.

  3. John,

    I agree with Barry......................there really should not be a reason
    why you would have to use the proprietary software. It'd sitck with OS
    software.
