HD Tune is a Hard Disk utility which has the following functions:

 

- Benchmark: measures the performance

 

- Info: shows detailed information

 

- Health: checks the health status by using SMART

 

- Error Scan: scans the surface for errors

 

- Temperature display

 

HD Tune may also work with other storage devices such as memory cards, USB sticks, iPods, etc.

 

 

 

 

 

HD Tune really puts the Promise into a good light here with lower CPU usage and higher transfer speeds.
