    Xenu Link Sleuth is free; Scrapebox also if you have it.

    That was a 9 second check in google for you to get that.

    If you use WordPress you can install plugin for this, name of plugin "broken link checker", you are wasting yours and others time asking such stupid questions in state of doing research yourself.

    Xenu link sleuth is commonly used. You can also search on Google for others. Many online sites are available for this purpose there.
