Default Is there a way to test your hard drive's speed?

I've got a RAID 0 and I'm curious about its performance. Is there a program that can run diagnostics like this?
Thanks in advance!

Question Re: Is there a way to test your hard drive's speed?

One of the Earlier Versions of Everest had HDD speed tools.
I dont remember which version offhand, although I still got it somewhere around the house.
I was just woundering why they ditched it with all the newer versions?

Dont remember a HD speed test in Everest ( not saying their wasnt one, just dont remember and dumped all my old versions of stuff the other day... hoarding 2gb of junk ) do remember them always having a memory speed test which is still there, checked AIDA32 the for-runner too for a HD test..... Sandra still has a HD speed test AFAIK ( doesnt like my PC for some reason I get lockups )

as to why they dumped it... they have removed all sorts from the free version as they now sell 2 different versions Ultimate $39 and Corporate $29 which are feature packed.
