The benefits of working with portable tools
Subsequent to the download process, you can just decompress the archive and run the EXE file, as the application does not require an installation process in order to function.
As a consequence, you can even store IsMyHdOK on a USB stick or other portable memory drives and carry it with you wherever you go, using it on all compatible computers, without leaving a trace when done.
Run benchmarking tests on your partitions to estimate their performance
IsMyHdOK allows you to choose the targeted volume from a dedicated menu. It supports HDD and SSD drives, but also USB sticks or SD memory cards, so you can work with whichever you need.
IsMyHdOK offers four different test durations, specifically ‘Short Test’ (of fifteen seconds), ‘Quick Test’ (around 30 seconds), ‘Long Test’ (approximately 60 seconds) and ‘Very Long Test’ (of up to four minutes).
The operations consist of reading and writing data continuously, in 4 or 512 kb blocks of data, as well as running in parallel 64 blocks of 4 kb. The ‘Access Time’ refers to the amount of time it takes between each read / write action, being measured in milliseconds.
When finalized, the results are displayed in two tables, for ‘Read’ and ‘Write’ values; on the lower part of the window, you can view the ‘Benchmark’ estimates. Thanks to the ‘Screenshot To File’ function, you can save an image of the results to your computer, in PNG format.
A useful benchmarking instrument
In conclusion, IsMyHdOK is a handy and efficient program that can successfully assist you in measuring the performance level of your computer partitions, enabling you to determine the read and write speed of the disks through various tests.
