I am building a new computer, and i might use my current hard drive. It's a Western Digital 00AAKS-65Z7B0. I've looked it up on passmark, and it scored ~600. This seems about average.
However, I checked my windows experience index, and it scored a whopping 7.5 out of 7.9. I've heard that is a score range only for SSDs. That makes me wonder if something is wrong. As far as i know, it's just an old 7200 RPM HDD, not some fancy SSD, considering it came with a $400 computer.
Is something wrong? Did I get a godlike HDD for some reason? Am I mentally retarded? Any help will be appreciated.
1. Yes, it's from a glorious program knows as "Inspiration 8"
2. Nope, no flash sticks, but there is something weird called "HP Recovery" listed as my D: drive, and has 13gb total space. Maybe i'm going off on a tangent here, but could it be some sort of virtual device, and that is what is giving me such strange results?
^ Totally agree, but its a good indicator of "things are working mostly right" vs. "Things are not right"
emfoshiz, the HP recovery disk is just a partition on your drive that's there so you can reinstall windows and all the bundled software incase you f up your install. Almost all PC makers put that there, btw.
