Looking for free bootable Hard drive diagnostic software

Snuffy09
I know you can go to website of the maker of the drive but in some situations its not so easy to find out the make of the drive. a general use (works on any drive) utility would be great, Id just be checking for read/write errors.

I have done the whole google thig already, most I have tried are meh... or not bootable. just seeing if any of you have any favs.

thanks for any help :)

    Which is good enough to test the drive but if there is a Warranty Replacement it will not give the correct details for anything but Seagate Drives.

    Personally I carry a copy of the Ultimate Boot Cd with me and that has all of the Diagnostic HDD Utilities from the different makers and it's bootable, free and easy to use.
