I want to measure the read/write speed of my hard-drive. I came accross this page recommending Blackmagic Disk Speed Test.
There is a frame saying this:
Note: Blackmagic Disk Speed Test puts hard drive under extreme stress during data write and read operations, therefore it’s recommended to save your work before conducting the tests.
Now my question is: Could that 'extreme stress' on my hard-drive damage my hard-drive?
