about HD Tune Jun 2011

This is a great tool for measuring the performance of a Hard Drive. It will measure the Max and Avg Read Speed. It will also measure the drive temp and list the drive features. Also, the tool will allow you to run diagnostics on the drive to find errors. It has a nice user interface.
