SeaTools for Windows is a comprehensive, easy-to-use hard drive diagnostic tool that helps you quickly determine the condition of the hard disk in your computer.

As said above, SeaTools for Windows is very easy to use. Run the tool, select drive (s) for testing, and choose a diagnostic test from the Basic test menu option. The test will begin immediately.
