Of course! But with Maxtor you do have to go back I have a 750GB Maxtor One Touch that I bought in 05' if i rem correctly and it is an Seagate Barracuda. After the external enclosure stopped powering on, I just took out the HDD. That drive still works perfectly
Older HDDs still bear those logos with them.
