Windows 7: Partitions - View Hidden Partitions

I believe, don't use it myself, that HD Tune also uses non-compressible files.
Which is why it will give low numbers for OCZ SSDs.
Have seen it mentioned that this benchmark is made for HDDs, some benchmark sites still use it for SSDs though.

One of the things I like about AS SSD is it gives information in the upper left corner, SSD brand, firmware version, driver, alignment size and in green font if it's good and red font if bad, usable space on SSD.
This information will show when it's opened, you don't have to run the benchmark.
