Probably not. The diagnostics are for internal drives. The EHD could be connected to a Linux computer and the file systems checked for consistency. That should work but E* could have made file system changes so it might do more harm than good. The disk itself could be tested on Windows with GSmartControl. That would determine if there are bad sectors or other hardware problems.
