    Do you need more than Windows default tools to check/repai

    I sometimes wonder about techs using tools such as Seatools, HDD regenerator etc to diagnose/repair hard drives. Do any of these tools beat Chkdsk in any way?

    (besides data recovery tools, I guess those have no match in Windows).

    Thank you

    Seatools checks a lot more than file system integrity so I'd say yes, that and similar are good to use when needed.
