Is this the procedure that you're trying to follow?: http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/num.n...lg=en&ct=us

If so, the first place to start is at the website of the manufacturer of the hard drive. They generally have free tools for diagnosing and repairing their own hard drives.

If it's not a hard drive, then first try the manufacturer's website. Then try Google searches which include "free" or "freeware" in the search terms - that'll give back results for the type of media you wish to diagnose/repair. For example to diagnose/repair a USB flash drive, search for "flash drive repair freeware". The search will also turn up shareware (because it offers a "free" trial) - so you'll have to sift through the results.

Let us know specifically what you're trying to diagnose/repair and we can give more input.
