    Basically i've had a HD which refused to read some data off it (only about 5 files out of 1Tb files) and I suspect it was only a sector or two that wasn't able to be read.

    Now is there an app or something that would read the entire disk to make sure it can be read properly?

    These files arn't backed up as they in relative terms are not important, however if more and more files become unreadable then clearly it's on it's way out.

    Any ideas on an app that will check you can read off every file?
