Hi, I’ve cleaned two HDD’s as I’m going to sell them but I want to make sure they are healthy, could someone please tell me a couple of reliable programs I could use to check the health?

many thanks
 
Victoria for Windows is another tool.

SeaTools does not provide a true indication of the SMART status. A drive can have thousands of bad sectors and still get a passing grade from SeaTools. I would only use SeaTools if you need a "test code" for warranty purposes.
