Frankly I don't think it's such a great idea doing stress test on a hard disk, since it has mechanical parts.

If you want to check for bad sectors, you can use one of the manufacturer's util, depending on whether your HDD is made by IBM, Seagate, Maxtor etc.

The Hitachi (was IBM) Drive Fitness Test has it.

It is useful for testing refurbed drives.
