Anybody know of a good HDD checking utility that will run on a win XP machine?Thanks in advance.
if it's a Seagate drive try this click hereI don't think it works on other drives but not 100% sure about this.
Thanks for the response, but I have a Maxtor, I was thinking more along the lines of something that monitors the disks health and then gives warning of impending faliure.Am I clutching at straws?

Just goggle hard drive health monitor and theres lots to choose from
Thanks one and all, some interesting links here to explore, so I will tick this one as solved
Here's some Maxtor diagnostic s/w click hereHTH, dagwoood.
The seatool will check other drives but not as good as a Seagate one
