Next goes copying into a subfolder on the same partition.
As you see, the drives from Western Digital deliver the worst performance, again.
When copying files of the Install pattern into a subfolder, the two disks from Maxtor keep their advantage, but now they are closely followed by the two ATA-interfaced drives from Hitachi. The drives from Seagate are not as good at copying as they are at reading, so their results are average here.
The Maxtor drives feel even more confident when copying large files. The drives from Hitachi are far behind the Maxtors in the ISO pattern, but approach them in the MP3 file-set.
The copying of small files allows the Hitachi team to take the podium, while the Maxtors are outperformed by the Seagate drives.
