Note that this was originally suggested by malikorx69.

I recently needed to conduct some disk benchmarking and found this little app to be the most intuitive and easy to use.

CrystalDiskMark V3.0.0h now writes settings to > %localappdata%\CrystalDiskMark30.ini

CrystalDiskMark V2.2.0p writes it's settings (DiskMark.ini) in the apps folder.

V3 is a bit more verbose in the dialog and in copy/clipboard, and a new benchmark was added 4k QD32 (Queue Depth = 32).
Seems to have dropped support for Windows Me/98

V2.2 is still available at their download page > (Old) CrystalDiskMark 2.2.0p [2010/02/12].

Sidenote: CrystalDiskInfo 3.9.0 released yesterday (10/09/10) still writes it's settings (DiskInfo.ini) in the apps folder.

With so many sloppy developers who readily make changes to their programs without changing the version numbers I can never be sure whether I am using the latest version of a program. This has become an epidemic.
