you go to the makers web site download section and look for the iso version of the diognostic utility so you can put it on cd

it just checks the condition of the hard drive it will not interfere with your files but it will tell you if there is a problem with the hard drive

if there is a problem, and it comes to the point where i HAVE to buy a new hard drive (hypothetically speaking), will the hard drive i posted a link to on page one work for my Evo?

Also, what do i do if there is no problem?

(sorry I know I'm asking to many dumb questions, but its for future reference and all)

Also, i went to recovery console on my OE disc and did the chkdsk stuff (/p and /r) and it says "The volume appears to contain one or more unrecoverable problems" the second i type it in (0%).
