Windows 7: ssd test tool?

22 Jul 2012   #1

ssd test tool?

i've been on the look out for an ssd testing tool, similar to regular hard disk test kits like seatools and such.

the reason being is i don't trust older software to look for problems on ssd's as i've been getting some strange results with ssd drives.

i've asked ocz, corsair if they have any diagnostic software and if they could direct me to it or just outright send me it, and they said nope.

anyone know of any reliable and good diagnostic tools for ssds?

There are performance tools such as CrystalDiskInfo, ATTO, etc.
I know it's not what you asked for, but have you tried these type of tools?

I found SSD Life in a search - i've never used it.
It looks like they have free, paid, and trial versions.
SSD life - tool for solid state drives health and endurance monitoring

Can you explain what you mean when you say
as i've been getting some strange results with ssd drives.
What strange results / problem(s) do you have?

Maybe you have System/Windows issues that are not caused by an SSD?

Your current specs don't list an SSD - you should update your specs.

hope this helps,

It seems people use such a tool so they can overclock and stuff. That is not why I want to use it. I am more interested in Photoshop than I am in gaming....

Am still having difficulties with a slow boot and load so is there an app for testing SSD's specifically? Have tried the HD Tune I think it was but it just gave me read / write rates and nothing that would suggest the controller or drive itself is out of whack - Crucial M4 128GB I guess I...
