    Click on Finder from the Dock, Then Click on Applications from left side pane, then from there, go to Utilities Folder then Open Disk Utility. Then see at the bottom of the window and there will be S.M.A.R.T. Status, see what you see. If it is shown verified then there is no problem with the hard disk. Also have a look at this topic may be u can get something useful : Similar Software between MAC and Windows. Hope this is what you are looking for...

    Open Disk Utility and from there click on the "First Aid" tab, click on the Verify button so that it will let you check the directory structure. Click on the Repair Permissions button which will check permissions on system files. This process can generate error messages, but you can ignore it. Then run it for a second time, and this error will most be gone... Hope this is of use...
