CheckDrive takes a random file in a directory (and sub-directories), and make a copy of the file, and then delete it again afterwards.

This can be use to check a harddrive for intermitten errors.

Guide / FAQ:

The program should be strait forward to use, and all buttons and checkboxes, should be more or less self-explanatary, or show a tooltip.
Just select the start directory, and press the Start button.
The Recurse checkbox makes the program recurse into all sub-directories.
The Extension defines the extension of the temporary copied file (default .CDF).
Delay defines the time in milliseconds before copying the next file.
