    Great! The software in your solution post performs expeditiously well on my external hard drive of 100 GB. As the drive is quite old and my Macbook couldn’t able to detect it easily and so as your software, I can’t blame the software for its incompetency in detecting failing hard drive. Not sure weather the software can performs at the same speed on larger hard drives, can say of 1 TB in size.
