How can I check if my hard drive is OK - free. It was suggested I go to the Hitachi site, but I can't find anything on there.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

What make is the Hard Drive you wish to check?

Have you visited it's Manufacturers Site?

Did you find any free Software there?

Thanks I'll look at the sites.

wee eddie - Could 'Winbond' be the name of my hard drive? This is what it says in device manager.

If not, where would I look for the name of the hard drive?
