Default Diagnostic tools?

I need to make sure all my hard drives work before i sell them. What is a REALLY good tool for testing all the sectors of the drive and making sure they function correctly?

Thanks

Nice looking proggy though I doubt the OP is looking to buy anything.

@OP, what brand of drives? most manufacturers provide free diagnostic tools on their websites.
