Checking a hard disk... Tags: Hard Drives Storage Last response: December 12, 2009 11:41 PM in Storage Share synapsediagram December 3, 2009 2:38:08 AM I have a few drives that I have sitting around and was wondering what is the best way to thoroughly check the disks for errors, bad sectors, etc? Could someone recommend a good program for doing this? I want to make sure it does a thorough job. Thank you very much for your time.
