Drive Speedometer is a program made to help monitor the current read and writes speeds of your hard drives.
· When your system is running slow yet your CPU usage and memory usage are fine, it is normally the hard drive being maxed out. Now you will be able to keep an eye on the hard drive performance.
· When a drive is slowly dying it will run slower and slower. Being aware of what your normal drive speeds are and seeing those speed drop over time is a great indicator it is time to replace the drive.
· When I have a program doing some work and appears to be hung up I can see if it is still reading or writing to the drive. This way I know the program isn't hung up and is still working.
The program uses the Windows performance counters to pull the information. If you have disabled your performance counters, a reg file is included in the package to enable them again. Run the reg file and reboot. Once you complete these steps, the performance counters will be working once more.
Some pre made bar fill graphics are also included, along with some to use when running the monitor in compact mode. You can of course make your own as well.
