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. 

Results for our first set of tests are pretty impressive for the OCZ Summit 250GB SSD, in particular the File Copy results.  The Summit drive is able to basically match the overall performance of the Intel X25-M 80GB drive and easily passes OCZ's own Apex series drive.
