Ok I first wrote about this utility in 2 Types Of Kickstarter Projects, but I think it deserves a post of its own. It's a utility to test the true size of drives by filling them with data and reading it back. This is particularly useful for unscrupulous USB flash drives that over report their capacity, which will lead to data loss. It's also useful since it reports write and read speeds, which is what I want to record here.
