A remarkable number of commercial disks are benchmarked using this tool. It's a must-have for comparing hardware performance.

CrystalDiskinfo should not be listed under Similar/alternative apps for CrystalDiskMark. CrystalLDiskMark benchmarks, whereas CrystalDiskinfo supplies a lot of disk information, but does NOT benchmark.

@ smaragdus: First mentioned by malikorx69 [07 Feb 2008], so this is the forum topic.
guinness post is dated [09 Nov 2009].
I agree to merge the two, but malikorx69's should be first!

Thanks, smaragdus, nicely done -- but as the topic you found is a single post, I think we should ask webfork to merge it with the current official topic. What do you think?

Just tested it and it seems to be writing the settings file to the app folder correctly at this point. I think you can change this to stealth now.

it's a nice idea but i've heard people say that benchmarks like this are worthless because disk caching. unless the temp files are bigger than the caches, the results are bogus.

This software is not stealth, it creates CrystalDiskMark30.ini in the user's folder.
