well i know that if you know how to make a DOS boot disk then add maxllf to it... (should be plenty of space) that is will fix any harddrive... lose all the data though.

oh hell let me look a little closer since i am bragging.........

ooops I forgot the machine i am on has no floppy drive... just a minut

okay got my old win98 P2 up...
To make a DOS boot floopy disk on your a drive.
1) put a formatted floppy in your a drive
2) go into the system files... i forget where they are ( you know how to do a search on your windows machine, right!!!)

Now I did this from a win98 system.... it should work on XP or anything else... that is the same file names.

copy the files Command.com (not .exe that is something different... i think
Debug.exe (probably not needed for this)
Drvspace.bin... not sure about that one either...

hell let me just get a web page for this

FORGET THE ABOVE:

http://www.computerhope.com/boot.htm

excerpt:
==Creating a Windows 98 / ME boot disk
==Note: These steps are for users who have Windows 98 or Windows ME ==installed on the computer.
==
==An excellent feature of Windows 98/ME is its boot diskette. Using ==Windows to create you a Windows 98 boot diskette will give you all ==the needed files as well as CD-ROM support. To create a Windows 98 ==boot diskette, click Start / Settings / Control Panel / double-click ==the Add Remove programs icon / click the Startup Disk and create disk.
==
==Alternatively, to create a Windows 98 boot diskette manually from ==Windows, click Start / Shutdown and choose the option to restart the ==computer in a MS-DOS prompt. At the prompt, type:
==
==cd\windows\command
==
==Once at the C:\DOS directory, skip to copying files.link


ETC.........

Then after u copy that stuff add the file:
MAXLLF.EXE size 64K (that is the size I have for mine so if you find it it should be about the same size)

then you boot with your newly made floppy and run maxllf and it fixes your harddrive.... good idea to take the other drives off line b4 u do this I think maxllf will clean those too if u r not careful.
