    I need to run a check (all possible) on my external HDDs. Please recommend a good (preferably freeware) tool which i can use to run tests on my HDDs. Specifically i want to check the HDD for bad sectors and anything abnormal so as to ensure protection of my data before things get out of hand.

    ou Use Disk Doctor in Tune Up Utilities(shareware but you can use the trial version). It's one of the best AFAIK or you can use Ariolic Disk Scanner if you want a freeware.
