Hard drive makers usually have free utilities that check the disk for software and mechanical errors. I don't think they'll tell you what cluster is bad and for sure, not what files are on it. If any bad clusters show up, the drive is on the way to being toast and you'd best back up whatever files you can and be ready to replace the drive.
