Parkdale is a small program that will allow you to test the speed of your hard drive, see if your hard drive is really functioning at the speed indicated by the manufacturer.
Here’s the description from the website:
Get the read and write speed from your harddisks, cdrom devices and network servers.
You can start a speed test on disks, cdroms and network shares. You get the transfer rate in KB or MB per second. Further you can adjust the blocksize used to access the disk.
Several comnmandline options are available. All options are shown if the program is started with ‘-?’.
The program has two different modes:
- BlockAccess – The test data is read from/written onto the disk directly without using the filesystem.
- FileAccess – The test data is read from/written into a normal file using the filesystem.
