disk bench (raid)


Recommended Posts

hello! very new reg'ed user here.


i have a raid0 using windows raid. the disk bench shows I can bench each drive independently but not the drive letter itself.  so if i move forward w/ a bench is it just testing the one drive or both in the raid0 config?

AIDA64 Disk Benchmark handles physical drives, as they are managed by Windows.  In case you have a RAID array defined, the RAID array will appear as a single physical drive in Windows, hence AIDA64 will treat it as a single drive, and will benchmark it as a single drive.  In such case e.g. for a RAID0 array of 2 drives, both drives will be benchmarked in the same time, and their theoretical performance will be added up (aggregated).


If you have a RAID array defined, there's no way to benchmark the individual drives (member drives) separately.  AIDA64 also doesn't have file system benchmarks, so for example you cannot benchmark C: drive or D: drive separately, if they're 2 partitions of a physical drive.
