Software for testing USB Drive Read/Write speeds?

Would anyone know of any freeware that will do this?

I don't, but for comparison, I would follow the same kind of test that PC magazines use. For example, one magazine might test a groups of drives by writing the same 600MB of mixed files to all the drives and timing the process. If you do the same, you'll get a good idea of how your drive compares.

However, if you want to know exactly what speed the drive is running at during the write process, that might be more difficult. I can't say that there isn't any software that can do that, but I don't know of any.

There are other variables specific to each individual PC of course, so total accuracy can't be achieved with the above method.

I'm presuming you are discussing an external hard drive rather than a flash drive?
