I image copied data from a 20 GB Maxor hard drive to a 60GB Maxor hard drive using the Max-Blast v1.30 utility that ships with the Maxor hard drives. All data was correctly copied, but the 60GB
hard drive capacity now is read by Dos and all other utilities as 20GB. I tried deleting the DOS partitions and reformatting the hard drive, but it still is recognized as a 20GB. Does anyone know how to recover the missing 40GBs?

Yes it does BIOS is only a few months old. I visited the Maxtor web site and down loaded a couple of low level formating programs. I suspect that the problem is in the low-level formating. I am going to try that and I will let u know.
