Maxtor Drive utilities.
I upgraded my TiVo with two 100 gig drives. I've noticed some problems now and then. Such as Internal errors, I've never seen before. I opened up my TiVo and felt the hard drives, the drive directly in front of the fan felt fine, the drive off to the side felt fairly hot. Nearly burning temperature. The System Information reports the temperature at 38 degrees (Normal). But as we all know that means very little.
What I want to know is this: Are there any Maxtor disk utilities that will check whether the drive has gone bad without altering the contents of the drive?
I've got no 100 gig drive in my pc, so I can't dd the drive contents to back it up. And as you can imagine my 200 gig unit is quite full with recordings, and I really don't want to lose them. It would be one very long exhausting weekend to try to watch everything on there. And recording it all onto Video would be about as good as throwing it away.
So to reiterate, are there any disk utilities I can run to check the status of the drive that won't compromise the data?
