It has been a while but I think Broni linked me to a site that had software that could be downloaded to test a sata hard drive.  The one I got works and was planning on giving it to a friend and load her windows 7 on it.   She only uses this laptop for home schooling her two boys and one of them dropped the laptop and trashed the drive.  I have an old sata 160 gig I can give her but before I go to the trouble to loading windows 7 on it I want to make sure it is good.  I have searched and cannot find the utilities for a Toshiba brand drives like I can seagate and WD.   I once had a CD with all the test utility's on it but I guess in my old age I lost it lol.   Anyway know of a site where I can download something to test this drive.  Thanks. Tom

The computer is bootable Broni.  It is a Dell laptop that I installed an older sata hd in.  I just wanted to check for bad sectors and make sure it is not defective before I let them have it. I don't want to see them put any money in this old laptop because it was dropped and the hinges are not that good.  The link you supplied looks like it is for a Toshiba laptop but I have not looked good at the site.  I know one time a few years ago you linked me to a site that had these hd tests on them.  THANKS. Tom
