Parkdale, free and portable utility to quickly perform a speed test on disks, cdroms and network shares. Helpful to investigate how and where are bottlenecks in local and network connections.

The program has two different modes:

BlockAccess - The test data is read from/written onto the disk directly without using the filesystem.
FileAccess - The test data is read from/written into a normal file using the filesystem.

OS Supported: MS Windows XP, Vista, 7
