Test Download Drive Performance with CrystalDiskMark


What is a test download drive and why do you need one?




A test download drive is a simple way to test your internet speed, reliability, and performance by downloading and uploading a large file from a cloud service or a software. It can help you troubleshoot any issues with your internet connection, optimize your network settings, or compare different providers or plans.


Using a test download drive can also help you check the health and performance of your hard drive by running a diagnostic tool that scans for errors, bad sectors, or slow speeds. This can help you prevent data loss, improve your system performance, or upgrade your storage capacity.

In this article, we will show you how to create, use, and optimize a test download drive for your needs. We will also provide you with some tips and tricks on how to get the most out of your test drive.


How to create a test download drive




Using Google Drive




One of the easiest ways to create a test download drive is to use Google Drive, a free cloud service that lets you store and share files online. Here are the steps to follow:


  • Create a Google account or sign in to your existing one.



  • Go to and click on "New" in the top left corner.



  • Select "File upload" and choose a large file from your computer. You can use any file type, but we recommend using a video or an image file that is at least 1 GB in size.



  • Wait for the file to upload. You can see the progress in the bottom right corner.



  • Once the file is uploaded, right-click on it and select "Get link".



  • Copy the link and save it somewhere. This is your test download drive link.



Using Speedtest by Ookla




Another way to create a test download drive is to use Speedtest by Ookla, a free web-based tool that measures your internet speed and compares it with other locations. Here are the steps to follow:


  • Go to and click on "Go".



  • Wait for the tool to run a speed test. You can see the results for your ping, download speed, and upload speed.



  • Click on "Settings" in the top right corner and select your preferred units, server, and interface.



  • Click on "Change Server" and choose a different location from the list. You can also search for a specific city or country.



  • Click on "Go" again and wait for the tool to run another speed test. You can see the results for the new location.



  • Compare the results for the two locations and note the differences in speed and reliability.



  • Repeat the steps for as many locations as you want. This is your test download drive tool.



Using a hard drive testing tool




A third way to create a test download drive is to use a hard drive testing tool, a free software that checks the health and performance of your hard drive. There are many options available, but we recommend using CrystalDiskInfo, a simple and easy-to-use program that supports various types of hard drives. Here are the steps to follow:


  • Download and install CrystalDiskInfo from .



  • Run the program and select your hard drive from the list. You can see the basic information about your hard drive, such as model, size, temperature, and power on hours.



  • Look at the "Health Status" column and see if your hard drive is in good condition. If it says "Good", then your hard drive is healthy. If it says "Caution" or "Bad", then your hard drive has some problems that need to be fixed or replaced.



  • Click on the "Function" menu and select "Advanced Feature". Then, select "AAM/APM Control".



  • Adjust the sliders for "Automatic Acoustic Management (AAM)" and "Advanced Power Management (APM)" to change the noise level and power consumption of your hard drive. You can also click on "Recommended" to apply the optimal settings.



  • Click on "OK" and close the program. This is your test download drive software.

  • Open a web browser and paste the link from your Google Drive file. Click on "Download" and save the file to your computer.



  • Use a stopwatch or a timer to measure how long it takes to download the file. Divide the file size by the download time to get your average download speed.



  • Note any errors or interruptions that occur during the download process. These can indicate issues with your internet connection or your cloud service.



  • Repeat the steps for different files, links, browsers, or devices. Compare the results and see if there are any significant differences or patterns.



Testing your upload speed and reliability




You can also use your test download drive to test your upload speed and reliability. Here are some tips and tricks on how to do that:


  • Open Google Drive again and click on "New". Select "File upload" and choose the same file that you downloaded before.



  • Use a stopwatch or a timer to measure how long it takes to upload the file. Divide the file size by the upload time to get your average upload speed.



  • Note any errors or interruptions that occur during the upload process. These can indicate issues with your internet connection or your cloud service.



  • Repeat the steps for different files, links, browsers, or devices. Compare the results and see if there are any significant differences or patterns.



Testing your hard drive performance and health




You can also use your test download drive to test your hard drive performance and health. Here are some tips and tricks on how to do that:


  • Open CrystalDiskInfo again and look at the detailed information about your hard drive. You can see various attributes that measure the performance and health of your hard drive, such as read/write speed, error rate, reallocated sectors, temperature, etc.



  • Note any attributes that have a yellow or red color or a low value. These can indicate issues with your hard drive that need to be fixed or replaced.



  • Click on the "Function" menu and select "Graph". Then, select an attribute that you want to monitor over time. You can see a graph that shows how the attribute changes over time.



  • Note any spikes or drops in the graph that indicate sudden changes in performance or health. These can indicate potential problems or failures. These can also affect your internet speed and reliability.



  • Repeat the steps for different attributes, hard drives, or devices. Compare the results and see if there are any significant differences or patterns.



How to optimize your test download drive




Choosing the best file size and format




One of the factors that can affect your test download drive results is the file size and format that you use. Here are some advice on how to choose the best file size and format for your test drive:


  • The larger the file size, the more accurate the test results. However, larger files also take longer to download and upload, which can be time-consuming and inconvenient. Therefore, you should balance the file size with your available time and bandwidth.



  • The best file format depends on your purpose and preference. For example, if you want to test your video streaming quality, you can use a video file format such as MP4 or MKV. If you want to test your image quality, you can use an image file format such as JPG or PNG. If you want to test your general file transfer speed, you can use a compressed file format such as ZIP or RAR.



  • You can also use a combination of different file sizes and formats to test different aspects of your internet speed and reliability. For example, you can use a small video file to test your ping and latency, a large image file to test your download speed, and a large compressed file to test your upload speed.



Choosing the best cloud service or software




Another factor that can affect your test download drive results is the cloud service or software that you use. Here are some advice on how to compare
