Checking the speed of your Raspberry Pi SD Card

April 21, 2013 3 comments

Note that if you do a  read/write test on volatile memory such as USB or SD Cards then you will lose the data on them.

Having just upgraded the SD card on my Raspberry Pi from 4Gb to a 16GB, I was shocked to find that I was now getting a blank screen when running the start x for a good five minutes before the Raspberry Pi desktop would appear.

So I decided to run a program called HD_Speed from the team over at SteelBytes it measures both sustained and burst data transfer rates of your hard disks, cd/dvd-roms, flash cards/sticks, floppys, etc. in a realtime graphical display

The 80KB utility does not require installation and runs with a click. Select the drive and hit start. The read/write results show up as a graph and also as real values.

Which can be downloaded from the following location – http://www.steelbytes.com/?mid=20

It turns out that even though the  SD card for the Raspberry Pi was larger than the my previous SD card it was also a lot slower so it looks like I have to purchase a new faster SD card.

Quickly Scan Directory Sizes and Find Big Files

April 14, 2013 1 comment

Today’s blog is about a useful bit of software called treesize that can quickly scan directory sizes and find big files so you can work out where all the space on your hard drive has gone, to quote the develops of treesize about the freeware version.

“TreeSize Free can be started from the context menu of a folder or drive and shows you the size of this folder, including its subfolders. Expand folders in an Explorer-like fashion and see the size of every subfolder. All results can also be drilled down to the file level. Scanning operations run in a thread, so you can already see results while TreeSize Free is working. The Explorer context menu is supported within TreeSize, as well as the usual drag & drop operations.”

Which can be downloaded from the following location

Also if you want even more information about your directory sizes Take a look at the advanced analysis and management functions of TreeSize Professional.
