I have an (albeit) old Samsung Spinpoint F1 HDD (Model No HD103UJ) which is starting to fail; regular Windows warnings and occasionally need a disk-check on startup which often finds bad sectors. I have been trying to get hold of the diag. software for the drive but cannot for the life of me find a good download link. I bought the drive OEM so got no software etc with it. I can't find the software anywhere on the Samsung / Seagate sites and all the links I have found so far are broken.
Does anyone have a copy of the "ES-Tool" diag. app that they could share with me?
Thanks a lot

You can download ESTool *edited*. First backup all your data and copy it elsewhere so you have a copy before playing with the drive. If it is going bad, best thing to do is replace the drive with a new one.
Scrap that link, they use a silly anti-hotlink script and you cant even download the file if you navigate to the link from their homepage
