Hello,
I am looking for a simple speed testing tool to check data transfer rates between offsite office locations.

Any suggestions?

There is also your windows 7 task manager put it on Network
There is also resource monitor look under performance then look in Network Activity

you are correct all those are an option,  but I am looking for something a bit more targeted at analyzing connection speeds to different offices.  

for example I have a tool that can report back disk read / write speeds on a local computer.  I would like to find a similar tool for network file transfers.

iPerf is perfect for measuring file transfers over WAN or between remote offices, it's command line, but it's quite easy to use, it works with a client/server setup ...

iPerf looks promising but I would prefer a windows based tool.

I suppose worst case scenario I setup a Linux box on the network.

I see
The tool your using for the Disc is local?
And these offices are they local lan? Wan Network?
 Pings are the most basic speed tests for local networks it calculates the network delay between the computer and another target device on the local network.
 the 'ping' tool can be run from the command prompt
