chkdsk f: /f

Dear all,

I have the mobile disk crash to the ground and I think I need tools to check if everything still ok, that one is WD Enterprise Slim and in windows we usually do this:

chkdsk <driver letter? /f

but this normally return ok even if the hardware has problem, any other tools to check if the mobile hard disk really has problem after crash to the ground ?

do NOT run chdsk
first run a disk diagnostic from WD : http://support.wdc.com/product/download.asp?lang=en#diagutils

when this returns OK - then run chkdsk
