Hi folks trust you are all well i'm wondering if any of you have come across a download from maxtor to check and disable accoustic management from their hdd. I understand their drives ship with this option enabled and by disabling the drive runs quicker but louder.

I was just wanting to check my drive to see if it was already disabled by manufacturer(Mesh).

Have been on maxtor site but no downloads apparent for this so if anyone knows correct name for download i'm looking for i'd be grateful.

Many thanks.

Go to maxtor and look for the download AMset utility. this utility will disable A.M. You need to run it from command line. you need to boot your p.c. using a dos boot disk.
