Is there any utility that will tell you the RPM speed of a hard drive. I have an old Compaq Presario and was just curious what RPM the HD is (it's so slow). It's a 5.25 and I'm thinking a 4000 RPM. It would be kind of fun to know for sure.
Sisoftware I belive will do this.
I do know it will give a MB/sec reading for the drive.
Sony "VAIO" with 800 Mhz AMD 128MB Ram (upgraded from 233MHZ pentium II)
MSI K7T Pro 2-A mobo, running CPU fan @ 5v (still under 50c)
17" Trinitron, ATI video capture card
HP 8100 CDRW, Zip100, Maxtor 20GB ATA100 HD
Creative Live!Sound card, HP 932c printer
Linux Ubuntu, 4850e, 2GB Ram, ASUS m3n78-vm, 19" Dell CRT Flat Screen, NEC 1300a DVD burner.
I don't think Sisoft will give the actual RPM, at least I couldn't find it. Looking up the SN on a web site might be the way, I just really don't feel like taking out the HD to find the SN on it. It's not easily accesible in the case like it would be with a self-built computer.
Yeah, I'm pretty sure it's a Quantum Bigfoot. I remember seeing that as the manufacturer somewhere. Thanks for the info. Too bad there isn't a utility that can tell you that because I have a couple of other old computers I'd be curious as to what kind of HDs they have. Anyone by chance know what kind of HD would have come with a Packard Bell Cyrix 266?
