Recommended device benchmarking software for Windows 10

For free storage device benchmarking software, I highly recommend CrystalDiskMark.

The interface is nice, clean, and simple to use. And the results are easy to understand.

You can even record the test results by pressing Alt-PrintScreen (after the benchmarks have completed) to post to your website or blog for sharing and/or historical comparisons.

I’ll be using this program in my next blog post to test VeraCrypt’s (a free storage device encryption program) performance vs the same hardware.

Articles Diagnostic

Recommended drive diagnostic software for Windows 10.

For free hard drive, flash drive, USB drive, SSD, and NVMe drive diagnostic software, I highly recommend CrystalDiskInfo.

It sits in your Windows system tray and reports all drive’s temperatures and S.M.A.R.T data.

It can also set off an audible alarm if any drive’s temperature gets too high (the temperature limit is also adjustable).

Very useful when testing new computer case configurations or new drives!
