Thread Starter 
Hey i'm looking for a harddrive diagnostic program that will run under windows Vista 64 bit,

Vista has warned me its failing and I tried MS's chkdsk, and I couldnt find a log when I booted into windows to see if it passed or not

Go to your HDD's manufaturer page and download their diagnostics utility. They are almost always DOS based programs, so the OS doesnt matter. The ones from Western Digital, Seagate and Toshiba are ISO files that you can create bootable CDs with.

I know about the dos programs, but i was more hoping for something to run in windows, like sea tools in my 32 bit install,

I supose I will let it run over night while I sleep,

Will it leave a log file if so were?
