Re: [hard drive] CDM tests have me worried...

said by dolphins:

But I guess the main thing I was worried about was the drop in performance from sequential to random.

What you're seeing is perfectly normal for a mechanical drive. Random I/O is their biggest weakness, and why solid-state drives are so appealing.

I'll get the SMART results up soon and should I run CDM at the 1, 2 and 4 GB test levels?

You can try it at larger sizes, but I doubt it'll change much, if at all from 1 GB.
