Hello Brant Joseph,

There are many Hard Drive Disk error checking software like:

1) Seagate Sea Tools.

2) Hitachi Drive Fitness Test.

3) Microsoft Built In error checking.

4) Samsung HUTIL.

5) Western Digital Data Lifeguard Diagnostic.

6) Fujitsu Diagnostic Tool.

7) Bart's Stuff Test.

Top of them is Seagate Sea Tools it has a rating of 4/5 by many PC software websites. It comes in two versions "Seagate Sea Tools For DOS" and "Seagate Sea Tools For Windows".

Seagate Sea Tool For DOS is more powerful than the other Version but a little difficult to use.

Seagate Sea Tool For Windows is easy to install and user friendly. You can do basic or advanced testing of any kind of Hard Drive ( its not necessary that the hard drive must be of Seagate or Maxtor origin) either internal or external.

Seagate Sea Tool is free here are some links





Note: If your drive fails any of the tests than you have to replace the Hard Drive.
