Do you want to buy a new USB drive? And your friends recommened you different companies. Most of the time we see the ads of the USB company and then think that this is the best company for my USB drive . Or sometimes we take advice from friends and then buy a USB drive. I found this freeware named HD Speed which helps in checking the speed of reading and writing of USB drive,hard drive and CD/DVD ROMS. It also checks the speed of your hard drive but while checking speed for writing in a hard drive it erases all the data. The best part of it is that it is very small software and is compatible with Windows 2000, XP and Vista only, though it supports both FAT and NTFS volumes.You only need to select the drive and your speed check will start.
