    Stumbled upon this while I was digging around for
    hard drive diagnostic programs... Thought I'd share.
    Kudos to kONGO at ABXZone.com for compiling the list.



    HDD Manufacturers With Diagnostic Tools:

    IBM has sold the hard drive part of their business to Hitachi,
    the new company is called Hitachi Global Storage Technologies.
    The utilities for the Travelstar, Deskstar and Ultrastar hard drives are available here:

    ----
    If it's a Seagate drive, try their SeaTools Disc Diagnostic, available here:
    http://www.seagate.com/support/disc/drivers/index.html
    ----
    Maxtor has their own tool, called Powermax. Download it here:
    http://www.maxtor.com/en/support/downloads/index.htm
    ----
    Quantum was bought by Maxtor a while back, and Maxtor's utility (Powermax)
    now works instead of the older QDPS.
    ----
    Western Digital also has a suite of tools, called Data Lifeguard Tools.
    Get info about/download it here:
