    Can you please state what health check you would like me to perform (if you are making an offer based on a health check)?

    The drives have all been used in a HTPC that didn't see much use at all (on once or twice per week for a movie). The Samsung drives are probably around 3 years old and the Seagate drives between 1 and 2 years.

    The 2 external drives are around 12 months old. but it is best to assume that no warranty is provided (and you may be pleasantly surprised if you check the serial number).

    Happy to accept as it saves the hassle / risk of posting. Let me know what health checks you'd like me to run.

    Great. Again, let me know what health check you'd like me to run. Also, let me know what postage method you want to use (and you can add the cost when paying). Thanks.

    Something like this is what people normally use: PassMark DiskCheckup - SMART hard drive monitoring utility

    Not sure what the popular program around these parts is. Think there's something similar built into Windows 10.

    I have no issue coming over and picking them up and running the checks myself, as long as you're happy to refund if any problems are discovered. You're only 20 mins from me and when I come I'll swing by Kidderminster and make it a dual-purpose trip so no time will be wasted.

    Something like the above or CrystalDiskInfo.

    Are any of the drives still under warranty ?

    CrystalDiskInfo is the go-to on Windows I think. Ideally with all SMART values visible.

    On postage, happy to take slow post like MyHermes, don't mind if it takes 3-4 days to arrive

    OK, I will run a scan on the drives and post back once I have the results. I'm busy with work right now so it may be a few days.

    Withdrawn. Apologies, realised I needed the drive sooner, so had to source elsewhere

    Sorry @Ellsworth - Been stacked with work and found out on Tuesday that I'm moving house next week. If you need the crystal disk info then perhaps it would be better to go elsewhere as I'm not sure when I will be able to get that for you.

    I will wait for your response and will then archive the thread as it isn't fair for me to keep people waiting like this.

    I can wait, my urgency passed, but as I mentioned I'm also happy to come grab them and run the health checks myself. In the unlikely event there's a problem I can pop them back.
