Hard drive diagnostic tools

Are there any free, and good hard drive diagnostic tools that people can recommend?

My 160gb Seagate hard drive is about 10 years old, still going strong but I would like to check the health of the drive until I upgrade to a new computer in a few months (or decide to keep this as a backup).  

Thanks (and yes I do back it up from time to time!).
