How to test read/write speed of an external USB 3.0 drive

Hi
Is there a SSH command to test the read/write speed of the USB 3.0 HDD connected to my s905x3 box? Thanks

Just adjust the HDD label in the commands.

I’m a noob but I managed to test it :wink: It turned out my USB 3.0 HDD can write with 122,2MB/s
Thanks guys.

I use this simple Fight Flash Fraud (F3) utility to test the read/write to any storage. At the end of each test (after the storage is completely filled), it will show some summaries to include read (or write depending on the task) performance.
