Does anyone use Blackmagic disk speed test for their iMac? I downloaded it last week from the app store and can't get it to boot. I know it says it requires a 64 bit processor (which mine has according to the Terminal). I have a 2008 24" iMac running Lion 10.7.5.
Hi Again, I tried the download from macupdate but it still takes me to the App store for download. I downloaded and still no luck. I read several of the review comments and they, too, had problems running the app. I'll do some more research.
BTW, would anyone have an older copy that they could direct me to?
Patrick, I tend to agree with you regarding useage of the app. What I wanted to do is benchmark my old HDD and see what the speed increase is with the new SSD. After that I'd probably never use it again. BTW, do you know anything about Xdrive? This app was mentioned in an article about benchmarking Mac drives.
The place you are most likely to notice an improvement is in boot times and launching certain apps.
Why not just time your normal boot time and the launch times for any apps that seem particularly slow, then compare after the change?.
