Better safe than sorry. My view is that with something so important as a hard drive, if diagnostics software is availble for that brand it is wise to use it. I remember some time ago using Maxblast software to examine an old Samsung drive which wasn't working very well. When I had finished, it didn't work at all. This may have been coincidental, I don't know but it did make me wary!
