checking USB drive


New Member
Specifically, the disk seems having problem under that so-called operating system called wind..os.
So I need to find a lightweigh distro to boot the pc from usb key and see from CLI the disk and possibly copy files to another external drive.
The disk is seen by the bios. But I need to extract information about its health (hardware health, as data and surface are ok), to see if I can detect where is its problem (the short self test runs and never ends..but until I interrupt it it doesnt report anything..).
Which distro is out there that you can advice just to try and check by a few commands my somewhat defective 3TB WD disk?
