Could someone please recommend good (better than manufacturer's*) HDD diagnostics on a bootable CDR (preferably) or USB drive?
I really don't like running HDD diagnostics in my OS. (And if it's my system drive that's gone south it might be impossible.)
I've just gotten my first HDD >2TB, so my needs are no longer all met by running HD Tune (which I love) from the WinXP emulation on Hirens Boot CD.
Right now the best I know to do with my 4TB Western Digital drove is to use WD Diagnostics on a USB boot drive.
*at least some manufacturer's drive diagnostics only report errors above some threshold, whereas HD Tune reports ANY errors.
