I suspect that this is a newbie question - but I suspect that my hard drive might be failing - so I installed HD Tune Pro to run some tests. My read performance was an average of 27MB per sec (minimum 0.2, maximum 56) with an access time of 26ms and a burst rate of 47.4 Mb/s. (see below as well)
My question is how to compare this data? I tried to go to manufacturer website but had trouble finding similar statistics.
Is there an easier way? Where can I find benchmarks to interpret this data?
