Re: Assessing the Health of a Hard Drive
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I am pretty sure chkdsk in windows will assess and try to fix the mbr and other records on the drive.
Use the command line switch /f.
There are other utilities that can assess the health of your drive in various ways. I am trying to remember which one the fellow who built my computer used recently, but it seemed usable with JFW.
Definitely try running chkdsk from command line with parameter /f though

I may have a hard drive with failing health. In particular, it's possible that my FAT or MBR is/are corrupted. Is there a JAWS-friendly program out there that will run diagnostics on a hard drive, doing read/write operations and other tasks to arrive at an assessment of the overall health?
