View Full Version : HDD Scan tools

I've just purchased a 1 TB hard drive and before i transfer anything on i would like to scan to check if its DOA.
I've got Seatools and WD Diagnostics. Scanned with seatools fine. When i try with WD Diagnostics I get cable error? I've tried both v1.17 and v1.13.
Are there any other HDD checkers i can try?

use chkdsk, you can run a check that will do a full sector scan and give you results at the end, just google "chkdsk" for a list of commands, or open a command prompt and type chkdsk /?
