Hello and hope you doing fine, Recently I have bumped in to a problem with my Maxtor external HDD. Any time I try to access my HDD it gives me this error: "error performing inpage operation."

My device info: Maxtor 500GB. Model: 9NX2DT-500 Please kindly lead me to get rid of this difficulty.

Running a utility such as "DiskCheckup" to look at the "SMART" error counters will probably reveal "reallocated" or "pending" sectors. The first thing you should do is to get a copy of as much data as you can from your drive in case it fails. The next thing to do is to monitor the "reallocated" and "pending" sector counts. If those counts are increasing then your drive is probably failing, and it would be wise to replace it. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
