No it did not give me an option for a short test or an extended test. I had to accept a license agreement to see the interface. Once I clicked 'I accept', I was able to see the test information and results, which said:
Scanning for controllers

Have you been able to backup all your important data?
If not I would suggest doing so before the drive fails completely.

Is the purchase of a new drive possible right now and if so what kind of budget would you be looking at? I can search and find you some prices if you would like.
