Features Of HD Tune Pro Filehippo

Benchmark your HDD or SSD to ensure it is not underperforming
The application can run multiple types of tests to assess your device’s performance. HD Tune Pro enables you to measure transfer rate, access time and a burst rate, as well as CPU usage while transferring data.

It is also possible to perform a file benchmark using a file with a customizable length, as well as a random access test that simulates normal usage conditions by transferring files of varying sizes.

Keep a close eye on your drive’s health
HD Tune Pro monitors a range of parameters related to your storage device’s health, such as the temperature and fails count when performing various operations. These checks are performed regularly, and you will be notified if issues are detected.

Additionally, you can run a manual error scan at any time in order to locate damaged blocks or sectors. You can even choose which blocks should be scanned.

Assess disk usage, wipe deleted files and reduce hard drive noise
If you are running low on disk space, you can switch to the Folder Usage tab and run a scan in order to find and clean particularly large directories.

Privacy-minded users can take advantage of this program to overwrite the free space on their drives, thus preventing any deleted files from being recovered.

The Automatic Acoustic Management feature can help you reduce the noise made by hard drives while seeking, which can be an issue for users who have otherwise silent PCs.

Transfer Rate
The read speed is measured in megabytes per second (MB/sec). The minimum, maximum and average speed is displayed on the right. The blue line on the graph shows the read performance across the disk.
*note*: One megabyte equals to 1048576 bytes (=1024 kilobytes). Some benchmarks define one megabyte as 1000000 bytes which results in higher scores.

Access Time
The average access time is measured and displayed in milliseconds (ms). The measured access times are shown on the graph as the yellow dots.

Burst Rate
The burst rate is the highest speed (in megabytes per second) at which data can be transferred from the drive interface (IDE or SCSI for example) to the operating system.

CPU Usage
The CPU usage shows how much CPU time (in %) the system needs to read data from the hard disk.
