Hello.
Does anybody know of a free piece of software that can tell me the speed that my hard drive platters are spinning during actual use and idle?
Thanks.

Most recent PC drives spin at 7200rpm permanently, give or take a bit either way. If it's not running at 7200rpm it usually means the device is mechanically worn out and will slow down before dying altogether. Realistically the speed is not going to be trackableas to the exact RPM, short of you taking it to pieces effectively killing it in the process.
