Quickpar Create and Repair
Quickpar is a Windows program that creates recovery information for a group of files. In this benchmark, we create a recovery set for a Windows Vista ISO and time the process, which is what you see in the first screen shot below.
The second screen shot is the length of time it takes to recreate the original files if one is accidentally deleted. The test gives us an idea of how well the system memory, processor power and hard drive inside the machine performs.
