Working fine on i7 Retina iMac

Maybe Blackmagic updated this software in the last few days, but I had no issues running it just now on an late 2014 i7 Retina iMac. Have used this in the past and this version worked just as well as it always has.

Will not open

In case Blackmagic Design hasn't yet noticed, here is yet another confirmation that version 3.0 will *not* boot. (I'm running OS 10.8.5 on an i7 Mac.) As far as I can see, there is no mention of Disk Speed Test on Blackmagic's website, and I can find no download source for a previous version that would actually run. The app is free and I'd rather not leave a one-star review, but there is no way to run it.

Working on mid-2014 MacBook Pro Retina

I just downloaded this to test a USB flash drive’s speed and it is working just fine.
