How do i test my external hard drive

Hi guys, i know what the problem was with my external hard drive it was a faulty connector inside the hard drive casing. I took it to the dealers where they return faulty drives and he knew right away when he plugged it in. They recovered all the data for me for a small fee and replaced my external hard drive and as they didn't have the size of drive as my original they gave me a 500gb as opposed to the 320gb.

thank you so much for taking the time to post on this thread.....
