Scanning Hard Drive for Read Errors

Disk Scanner is a tiny freeware utility to check the hard drive for read errors. Sometimes, you may notice, that some files on the disk cannot be read. This may happen for several reasons, but the most important one is the hard drive degradation, that may be the first typical sign of the disk failure. In the course of investigation, you might need to disseminate the problem appearance, seeking for the real source of the troubles. By scanning your disk you can clearly see a possible direction for the further drive troubleshooting and repair.

Note that Disk Scanner makes a read only scan of the disk clusters and shows results as an image with bad clusters marked. The utility does not offer the errors correction ability.
