Could someone recommend me a software to deep scan my hard drive and find out if it has any faults with it? When the hard drives boots up it gives a grinding / scraping kind of noise for about 1 second and after that seems to run very silently. I have heard a scan might not detect a physical fault if there is one, but I think it’s worth doing.
Most people seem to recommend seagate or other software, but I am wondering if there is a WD software that is just as good, and not too slow. I have just installed XP on the drive, but not much else yet.
