What's a good HDD bench test?

I'm having a hard time running HD Tach on my Vista system. I get a dialogue box with the message, "Only runs on XP or 2000" or something to that effect. What's a good HDD bench test besides HD Tach?

  2. Yeah, I tried that last night for this first time. As a bonus, I get faster reported transfer speeds with Sandra than with HD Tach :D
