    Hi all,

    Is there any software that can check if a NTFS hard drive is working properly and repair it if necessary?

    I tried programs like Disk Warrior, TechTool Pro and Drive Genius. All seem to be good programs but none of them support NTFS even though my MBP can read/write NTFS.

    I would format my external hard drives to mac format but I need those drives to be accessible on a PC as well.

    Suggestions?

    Yes. It's called Windows. Since Macs can't normally read/write NTFS drives, I highly doubt that there are any utilities to fix it. Being able to write files via third-party drivers is quite different from being able to access and repair the filesystem.
