Windows 7: Windows 7 harddisk index score

For all you trying to get a better score than 3.0, If you uncheck Write Caching for you hard drive under the policy tab and clear all wei scores and re run, you should get a better score.

Not just unchecking "Turn off Windows write cache buffer flushing on the Device.
Uncheck Enable Write Caching on the Device

When you're done with your WEI run, re enable write caching. You will have better performance with this checked and the only data you may lose ( in the event of a power loss) will be any immediate data writing to the HDD. IMO, an acceptable risk vs performance. It's up to you though...

As you can see with my results in this thread

Okay, thanks swarfega! I'll have to look into this raid thing. I think this requires a reinstall of the OS if I'm not mistaken. Those SDD's are hellish expensive at the moment, and the Velociraptor's are up there too! Decisions, decisions.

SSD prices are dropping fast.

We bought a 128 GB Patriot V2 probably about 4 months ago for $450. We haven't even powered it up yet (I will this week) and now its for sale for $280 from the same place.

We also just got a 32 GB for $80 (Its in my laptop right now) and I'm sure in a couple weeks the price will be lower once again.

Just buy one when you really want one . Technology prices are always fluctuating because newer technology is constantly released. Just buy when you feel the price is justified.

Okay. So what's faster: Velociraptor 10K, or Seagate 7200 in a RAID 0?

I believe what wpurcell was trying to ask is "Which is faster, a WD VelociRaptor @ 10,000 rpm or two Seagate Barracudaź @ 7,200 rpm in RAID 0"

Yes but there's several different kinds of 7200 RPM seagate barracudas. Some have 4 platters, some have 3, some are much faster than others.
