If your system is running slow or you are getting some errors then it’s a good idea to check your system’s hard disk and find its health, there is an inbuilt app in Windows which you can access by right clicking on hard disk and then navigate to properties and then from Tool tab you can check hard disks health.
It can try and fix the errors which it find while scanning your disk, but this tool has very limited features which go against it.
Macrorit Disk Scanner is a freeware tool which lets you scan any of your hard disk attached with your computer.
Macrorit Disk Scanner is very fast to use and can scan your disk much faster as compared with Windows Check Disk. Another thing which we liked about Macrorit Disk Scanner is that it can scan whole disk or just a selected part.
If you want a faster scan and wants to limit the scan area then you can select a part. Once the program runs it indicates healthy sector by green and bad or error in red ones.
At top you will find some information which might be useful for you like speed, estimated time remaining, and so on. Macrorit Disk Scanner saves a log file which you can look anytime.
Macrorit Disk Scanner can scan almost any type of hard disk like DE HDD, SATA HDD, SCSI HDD, FireWire HDD, SSD, USB HDD, External HDD, Hardware RAID, Floppy drive, USB flash drive, Compact flash card, Secure Digital card, Memory card/Memory stick, Micro card, Zip drive and so on.
Macrorit Disk Scanner is nice at checking error but this program doesn’t offer any way to repair them which is its limitation, you can check hard disk with it and if you don’t find any error then its good but if find any error then you need to run any other program like Check Disk.
