Real World Data Transfers
Many novices do not understand the importance of write performance and how great an impact it can have on real world performance. To show exactly what this new series can do we have also created a test that will do precisely that by the simplest expedient of copying either large or small files to and from the device. This way you the reader can see how it will react when tasked with two very common scenarios.
Using MS RichCopy and logging the performance of the drive we first transfer a 30.00GB contiguous file, to and from it; then a folder containing 1200 subfolders with a total 36,000 files varying in length from 200mb to 100kb (15.00 GB total).
These tests were done 4 times per device and the averages for each are listed below.
