Free Download to Test Memory Cards are Genuine + Check Storage Read/Write Speeds @ WWW.HEISE.DE , H2testw.exe

Found 20th Sep 2014
This Free Download is less than 1mb in size and takes literally a few seconds to download.
A small program that writes and reads to most storage devices to verify the read/write speeds.

"H2TESTW.EXE" can verify the class rating of your memory cards / USB sticks and also tell if they are fake.
This can stop you from overwriting and losing your data, often more valuable than the card itself.
- Particularly if it is photos of that very special moment that can't be replaced.

It can test both internal and external hard drive data transfer rates. plus it can be used to tell you which USB ports and Card Readers give you the best performance.
I have 4 USB ports on my PC and used this to identify which ones were USB 3.0 and which were USB 2.0

!!! - GENUINELY A TOTALLY FREE PROGRAM - !!!
- Not just a trial or a freebie linked to another deal, and you don't need to be technically minded either.
.
People who are "In The Know" may already be using this Free Program, that takes just a few seconds to download. Someone told me about it a few weeks ago and I have found it to be amazingly useful, so am putting it here in case there are others out there that do not already have it.

For those that do already have it, I hope you will agree and can confirm this is truly a "must have" utility.

PS - PROGRAM RUNS IN GERMAN BUT HAS A CHECK BOX TO SWITCH TO ENGLISH WHEN USED.

Thanks op, looks useful - heat

Excellent. Good bit of software to have.

This used to be the gold standard for testing hacked usb's bought off chinese ebay sellers. Probs still is the best Heated!

FREEZING COLD
Since my first comment, posted 40 minutes ago, doesn't show up (probably because I included a link), I'll try again.
Do not download software, any software, from obscure sites. Try to find the original, in this case easily found on the publisher's website; google for h2testw on heise dot de.
As to the software itself, it does what it says on the tin.

I did not know that was the original source as the only info in the utility is ctmagazin.de which took me to a German online magazine.Thank you for that information, I have now found the original link but the system will not allow me to change the one currently being used. Until I can resolve the GET DEAL link sorted will put the original link here . . .
HERE IS THE ORIGINAL LINK TO DOWNLOAD THE H2TESTW.EXE PROGRAM FROM
UPDATE . . .
The "GET DEAL" button no longer goes to the 3rd Party Betdownload source - Now goes to the correct Original Program Source of Heise.de same as the link here.

Would you happen to know how to contact the Moderators as I have tried but cannot find a specific link to do so ???

This software although good, does wear your flash device.

Not really a deal.
It is useful, especially given how many USB 3 drives are listed on here with massively varying speeds, but still, not a deal, just a download...

Good question. Not too sure.

It is only going to perform continuous writes once, so not really a problem.

It works very well although in the op it says that it takes a few seconds, which is most definitely not the case.

The reference of a few seconds is to get the program downloaded as it is only 214kb in size. In use, whilst it can give a quick speed rating in about a minute, I agree to verify a memory card is not fake, you need to write to the whole card which can take quite a while, depending on both size and speed of the card.

+1 - But the bigger the card, the bigger the cost so best to make sure you haven't been done!

thanks op
