    If it still works now, it probably still will later. I had a hard drive in an external box fall about the height of a standing tower PC onto the floor on two occasions, and the drive still works a year after.

    was it spinning when it did the bump? do a scandisk that does a surface scam to see if any damage to the drive.

    That's something I never thought to do.
    A drive will be in more danger of being damaged if it's on when it gets knocked.
