I assume this is by design but I would really like to see how fast my M.2 disks are.

Is there a reason that it does not detect them?

Thanks

Thanks for that; this is great. I don't see readspeed anywhere on that timeline, but I also assume that spinright needs to work on M.2 disks, so I am guessing it will need to be worked in there somewhere.

Mostly I wanted to make sure that I wasn't being stupid and missing something obvious and that it does work now. :)

ReadSpeed is a spin-off from the SpinRite development. It was a testbed for much of the new technology/coding, and became a useful product in it's own right. It was not planned as such, it just happened!

Your M.2 will likely be workable, though not wonderfully, under SpinRite thanks to its BIOS support. But that M.2 is almost certainly using an NVMe controller, which SpinRite won't be able to address until it's moved over to UEFI and its new operating system home. :)
