PCPer File Copy Test

PC Perspective File-Copy Test v0.3


Our
custom PCPer-FC test does some fairly simple file creation and copy
routines in order to test the storage system for speed.  The script
creates a set of files of varying sizes, times the creation process,
then copies the same files to another partition on the same hard drive
and times the copy process as well.  There are four file patterns that
we used to try and find any strong or weak points in the hardware: 10
files @ 1000 MB each, 100 files @ 100 MB each, 500 files @ 10 MB each
and 1000 files at 1 MB each. 

The original VelociRaptor had lost its lead to the RE4.  Here we see the new VR re-take the HDD throne in our File Copy testing.

Note: We've included the X25-M G2 160GB as an SSD reference point (in place of the VR 300, which is the standard HDD reference point in our SSD testing).
