My HDD Speed 2.20

My HDD Speed is a small tool which displays the current read/ write speed of all your hard drives in a tiny window on your desktop.

The program is portable, too, so there's nothing to install; just run the executable for a simple way to keep an eye on your hard drive activity.

One problem we did notice here is that sometimes, just occasionally, the My HDD Speed window was displayed below that of other applications. We've no idea why, and after minimising our other applications and clicking the program window, it correctly displayed on top of everything else.

Other issues include My HDD Speed's RAM requirements; 27MB on our test system is a little much for what it's doing. And the program will also display a "Donate" button until you give the authors some cash, although this at least it more reasonable: 5 Euros is accepted as a base donation, and that covers everything the authors produce.

Still, the program's display is clear, and if you're looking for a portable drive activity monitor then My HDD Speed just might provide everything you need.
