Windows 7: EXTERNAL ssd checking software

EXTERNAL ssd checking software

Hi there

Anybody know of any software to perform checks on SSD's attached to the system EXTERNALLY.

All the software I see will only perform stuff if the SSD was the BOOT device unless you ("go pro" i.e pay !!).

I'd like to check out 2 or 3 SSD's before I actually fit them into a system.

Hello Jimbo mate have you tried the AS SSD Benchmark one? Seems odd that you can't check an external without having to pay for it - a bit like say doing a chkdsk on one and Windows asking for more money to do it??

Could you tell us what ssd you are using and exactly what kind of checks you want to do?
