Maxtor Diamondmax Plus 9 - 6Y080M0



I have a Maxtor Diamondmax Plus 9 - 6Y080M0. It is a remaining hard drive
from another system. I'm running Windows XP.

I have managed to get it recognized by the Disk Management through a USB 2.0
to IDE/SATA Adapter kit.

In DM under Disk drives it shows as the Maxtor 6 Y080M0 USB Device, right
along side my HP C3180 USB Device and my WDC device.

Volumes Properties are:

Is Recovery possible?
