Nice FREE Utility
I use this often and appreciate it. The update (3.1) seems to provide much more stable speed readings than the 2.x version I've been using (where the guage is all over the map). One issue I have is that it seems to have issues with NTFS formatted drives. I'm using Paragon's NTFS for Mac, and BMDST writes to it well (430 to my SSD) but on the read test it often (though not always) fails with "Error reading the test file". Aside from this niche case it's an awesome tool.
Works well! An is free...
I had no problems of any type installing an using on two hard drives. Both running Sierra. It quickly told me how much faster a new SSD drive was over my old drive.
That is really all I wanted to know today. Yes an SSD is a lot faster. 5 times faster using a PCI adapter card an 2.5 times faster plugged into a drive bay. 2010 Mac pro.
Application Does Launch, but not when clicking open once installed
I’ve launched from launcher and it did start. I did try once installed to click on open and it does not open as it would close immediately.
