Maxtor has a utility that will do what you're looking for but it will only work on Maxtor drives. You can download it from the Maxtor website (I forget the name but the descriptions of the utilities in the download section should identify it for you). If your drive is too noisy it could also be a sign of impending failure. You might want to download the appropriate diagnostic utility from the drive manufacturer's website and run it on the drive to make sure it's not a drive problem.
Please don't PM me or any other members looking for personal assistance. You'll do better by posting (after you've exhausted the search feature, of course) and taking advantage of the collective expertise of the membership instead of a single individual that may or may not be able to help you. Thank you and enjoy your stay at DDB!
