I'm glad to hear that it worked for you!
Each hard drive manufacturer sets up it's diagnostic tools differently - so some may scan more than others. But the usefulness of these tools is mostly for diagnosing physical problems with the hard drive.
The tool of choice (IMO) for checking file system errors is "chkdsk" - as it was designed by the group that designed the file system itself.
It's sorta like 3 separate layers, one on top of the other:
The software lays on top of the file system
The file system lays on top of the hard drive
And the hard drive is the physical (hardware) layer
