Maybe you've bought a new storage unit and want to see if it's really up to the specs on the package; or perhaps you want to test an older storage device for errors and didn't know what to use. H2testw is a simple tool that is distributed for free, does not require installation and offers a very simple, easy-to-use interface. The program can be used by anyone who wants to know how their product compares to others, or the amount of errors that can be detected on their device.
Scan nearly all types of storage devices
A cool feature of the program is that it offers you the possibility to choose the amount of data you want to scan. You'll be able to scan the whole device or an exact amount of data, all with the help of a simple mouse click.
Although, it is mainly aimed at USB devices, H2testw can also be used to scan hard disks (internal or external), network volumes or memory cards. So, as you can see, the program is quite versatile when it comes to the number of storage devices it can check for errors.
Offering in-depth info on how well the device performs
After you've finished verifying your unit, you will be able to see the exact time it took for the operation to complete, the number of megabytes tested, and, of course, the writing / reading speed.
Basically, when you want to test the writing speed, the program will create a file of a certain size and will show you how fast your device can actually write it.
As far as customer satisfaction goes, you'll be pleased to find out that the software manages to score very high, especially when it comes to checking the actual size of memory cards and flash drives or their exact speed.
To sum it up, the program performs well and can certainly be helpful, especially when you've bought a new storage unit and want to test it. You can give it a try and see what it really tells about your multimedia storage device.
