I wouldn't worry about any scores you get from win 7.


There are in order of increasing severity: lies, darn lies, statistics, and computer benchmarks. - diskinfo man page

Default Re: Bad HDD score in Win 7

This is a known issue. The scoring done in Win7 is different than Vista and there is a known problem with the way it scores hard drives. They added SSD to the scoring but at the same time they have a issue cause if you have a certain item turned on it marks your score much lower.

I dont remember off hand what that is. But i know it is all over the Win7 Beta forums.

Found one of the many topics here.
