What is the best tool for determining the health of an internal hard drive? I have a Western Digital 320GB at 7200 RPM. The OS currently installed on it (a fresh install) is Windows 7 Professional 64-Bit.

Maybe try HDTune, which has a 15-day free trial.

HD Tune is a hard disk utility with many functions. It can be used to measure the drive's performance, scan for errors, check the health status (S.M.A.R.T.), securely erase all data and much more.
