Thanks ofr the mention of the other tools Van. I have Drive Genius and in the last few days it has started throwing up bad block errors on the boot drive. A routine verification shows no errors with either Drive Genius or Disk Utility. S.M.A.R.t status is showing as verified so I will be running a full scan latter and one of the other SMART tools may prove useful.

Glad to know that SMART testing of externals is sometimes possible. I've got a couple of older drives I need to check. I bet the enclosure that I swap them into does not support it though. They never show SMART status in Disk Utility.
