Hi there...i just got back my lacie rugged from the service centre & wanted to verify that the drive running inside is a 7200RPM...since thats what the original was...

however this information does not show up in system profiler...

is there any other way to find out what the rotation speed of an external drive is? (if not built into the os...maybe a 3rd party app?)

hope someone can help

thanks.

in the system profile it should give you the make and model number for the drive, google that and it should give you the spec
