Hard drive checking utility

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 here

I 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?

The seatool will check other drives but not as good as a Seagate one
