checking disk for readability

Recommended Posts

Hello

I am searching for a way to test the disk/partition for readability without locking/dismounting the drive and without fixing it.

I am particulary interested in standard support/resource tools that can do this.

chkdsk can only 'read' the whole disk/partition if you dismount the disk, and this is what i don't want.

Any solutions?

I give seatools the preference but it doens't detect my harddrives

I don't like using freeware tools made by who knows who because i have no assurance that it works correctly and it dosn't make my systems fubar.

I'll see with maxtor what they have to offer that works in windows environment.
