h2benchw tutorial

Extract from above.
"H2benchw can do a wide variety of tests, including write tests - but because there's no good way for write benchmarks on drives that contain data to cope with that data, h2benchw will only do write tests if a drive isn't even partitioned.

H2benchw even has "application" tests, which aim to mimic things like swap-file use, Photoshop and virus scanning - you know, the sorts of things that you actually do with a drive when you're not benchmarking it. But the readme, with refreshing honesty, says the app tests are outdated and unreliable"
