The very best tool you could use for checking the integrity of you're
disk, in my opinion, is TuffTest Pro. It's not free, but it is only â¬20
or so, er in American $. It's it's own ASM32 operating system and VERY
good at diagnosing hardware of many kinds, I bought my copy about 3
years ago and would do so again =)
That can tell you if you have bad head tracking in the disk, or
unreliable data retention, or even a poped cell in you're ram! So give
it a go perhaps.
Oh, make sure you're scsi adapter is supported ofc!
