Tool to check SSD drives?

Anyone know of a good app for checking the health of SSD drives?
I'm beginning to think my 250GB Apacer SSD might have corrupted some Windows data.

Hard Disk Sentinel is not free but very good, gives you lots of info, gives you a health percentage and a performance percentage of each drive in your system.

Hard Disk Sentinel - HDD health and temperature monitoring

Crystal Disk is free, the main website is not working, but this will do.

Download CrystalDiskMark - MajorGeeks


And here are some more links.

Do a check disk. Open a CMD window and type chkdsk c: /r

Thanks guys.
JLAF5150: Yeah, already did the sfc /scannow thing. Twice. No errors. Thing is, if it was a regular hard drive I could run HD Regenerator and it would report if there were any bad areas. There doesn't seem to be an equivalent app for SSD drives. I actually ran 'SSD Life' but it told me that my Apacer AST680S 240GB doesn't display 'its throughput' (or something like that term) and all it could tell me was that the drive had been running for 8041 hours (11 months 5 days 1 hour).
AddRAM: Cheers, I'll check those out.
Megahertz07: Yeah, already did CHKDSK /r. Twice. No errors.

- Check disk /r and SMART found no problems, I would say that the disk is good.

8080 / 39 =207 h for each boot, or a boot each 9 days. You should boot more frequently to clean memory garbage.

Yeah, I'm lazy, I know. I get a warning bell: After running the computer 24\7 for a week or so, with umpteen open web pages tabbed in Firefox, browsing becomes almost impossible so I'm forced to reboot.

Dunno why this is. It seems to happen when Firefox memory usage (or wastage!) gets up to around 2.5-3GB. Seeing as how I have 16GB of ram I can't see why this should be so. Another computer mystery...
