    Using Data Lifeguard for other drives

    Can I use this hard drive diagnostics for other drives besides Western Digital? Is there any free hard drive scanner utilities that others like to use that will search for bad sectors and even fix them? I know about SeaTools btw.
    Thanks

    Well, mine is a Toshiba. I would be nice to have one utility for any hard drive besides chkdsk. Is that possible?
    Thanks

    I've used HDAT for years with good results.

    I want to use a utility that I can use in Windows and have the hard drive in my usb enclosure dock. This way I can use my computer while testing. SeaTools is what I am used to.
    Thanks
