The data transfer rate is the traditional criterion for evaluating the overall performance of a hard disk. In this paper, the data transmission performance of hard disk was characterized based on fractal theory. The traditional mechanical hard disks and solid state disks with different capacities and specifications were tested and the corresponding signal graph of data transfer was analysed for the calculation of fractal dimension D. The results indicate that the process of hard disk data transfer has fractal characteristics; the fractal dimension D increases with the increase of the average transfer rate and the rotating speed of mechanical hard disk. However, there seems no direct correspondence between the fractal dimension D and the capacity of the hard disk; the larger the floating range of data transmission, the greater value of fractal dimension D.
