Default External Harddrive Diagnostic

I use to have a terabyte external harddrive... it was knocked over and two of the four disks crashes... so now its 500 gigs. It seems to run fine but I'm cautious to put anything on it. Is there software that can do a diagnostic on the disks and figure out if there would be a potential problem of using it still?

You can try this, but it's a pretty basic program.
