Is there any (free) software out there that can check the health of my hard drive. I want to set up a dual boot system but I wanna check the physical integrity of my drives first. My secondary hard drive is a 4 year old 120 gb western digital. The reason I ask is that every once in a while, i hear small clicks which I think are coming from that hd. It hasnt happened in months but it has started up again today.

clicks off the HD can be a problem
you could run scandisk or chkdisk and see what it finds

manufacturers have tools to check out there harddrives - but I think most test will overwrite the data

I have that CD - is there any particular test you run or are all of them non-destructive on that CD

just the HD diagnostics, choose the name brand of your HD, and run the diagnostics from the menu...I have not seen any programs on there, diagnostic wise, that erase data...but definitely pay attention to what your doing, as I have only used the ultimate boot cd now for a few weeks.
