|Scandisk (& chkdsk) are used for checking & repairing |
filesystem & cluster errors, they don't check the physical
integrity of a disk. The easiest option is to get a copy of UBCD
(Ultimate Boot CD) which has manufacturers' diagnostic tools for
the majority of hard drives, plus you can add your own utilities.
The quick scans generally take less than a minute.
