i ma looking for some free software that will test for the hard drive, reapir if possable and will let me low level format.
I have a couple of hard drives that have been reformatted several times and different partitions used so i just want to check them and wipe the slate clean.

Look for a copy of Hiren's Boot CD on the net
It has a menu full of different testing programs and various utilities.
PC-Check and PC-doctor do a good job and I forget the name of the low level formatter but its got that too.

alternatively, an ubuntu liveCD, Gparted, or windows vista will all do the same thing.
