Seagate's utility can only scan FAT32. You got to be kidding. When I use IBM or Hitachi hard drive utility for my IBM or Hitachi drives, it is not dependent on the filesystem because it uses LBA for scanning.

Since the partitions are formatted as EXT3 is taking longer than 10 hours and there is no way of knowing that these sectors are good or bad, try to backup your data and format the partitions to XFS using the option to check for bad blocks.
