Well, the rules (Terms of Service) were presented to you when you registered here on OCN. You might remember it because you clicked something that said you have read them and that you agree to obey them.
However, they're also at the bottom of every single page:Terms of Service / Forum Rules
Plus, there are sometimes specific rules for specific forums, such as the For Sale/Wanted area. Keep your eyes peeled.
Click the "Download" link, and then download the Portable Edition of version 3.10.0 (which is at the top of the page you are given). Or simply click here
. It's not necessary to download the installer edition unless you want to be able to open it by opening the Start Menu, typing its name, and then clicking what you get.
So I mean, it's just downloadable software like anything else.
However, I recommend ATTO Disk Benchmark
over anything else because only ATTO Disk Benchmark will show you the advertised Read/Write speeds (although, it displays it as Write/Read). Others like CrystalDiskMark will just show you what I think can be called "worst case scenario" results, so your results will look very low even though there's nothing wrong with your drive. Benchmarks other than ATTO Disk Benchmark seem to always confuse people, and I see at least one thread a week here on OCN by someone asking why their results are low.
However, any benchmarks that provides Write speeds needs to perform write-testing in order to provide those results. So, use these tests sparingly.
