DiskBench 2.7.0

How fast are my disks really? Disk Bench tests your hard drive speed in a real life situation not in a benchmarking environment. It's a portable tool so there's no need to install it. All it does is copies a file from A to B, times the time it took, and deletes the file from B again. The program is using the current filesystem to save a file. If it is fragmented, the performance will be degraded, as it is in real life. Just like its name suggests, this application has been specifically designed to put one's hard disks up to a test, save the results and present them in a nice and clean way.

There are numerous applications that are meant to test the limits of a computer and reveal its genuine performance level. They typically achieve this by stressing the PC to the maximum, while there are others, like Disk Bench, that simply monitor the computer and inform the user of its speed.

Disk Bench does not come packed in an installer, it is delivered as a standard executable file and double-clicking it launches the application.

The interface is well organized, and its several tabs display the benchmarks offered by the app: copy a file, copy a directory, create a file, read a file or create a file batch, they are all within reach, waiting for users to start testing the speed of their HDDs.

One of the functions provided by Disk Bench is that when copying and creating a file, users also get the possibility to automatically delete the target files, so that they do not get stuck with redundant items on their PC. 

It needs to be mentioned that the transfer rate one gets when dealing with smaller files will always be higher than the one of the larger ones.

When creating multiple files, it is possible to adjust the initial number of blocks and the block size, along with the number of created items, depending on one's preferences.

Overall, Disk Bench is an intuitive little utility that can prove to be much more efficient than other complex and heavily advertised software solutions out there. 

And with a few improvements in terms of accuracy and complexity, it could really become a top player in this software category.
