Now, the last action of FC-Test is copying files to another partition.
Copying Install files to another partition has put the drives in the alphabetic order almost perfectly, save for Maxtor being later than Seagate in the diagram.
Once again the Maxtor drives are the best at copying large files (of course, save for the 5A300J0 which is at the bottom of the diagram). Hitachi’s HDDs are grouped after the fast Maxtors; Seagate and Western Digital are competing in the next tier.
When copying the MP3 pattern, the Maxtor 7Y250M0 and 7Y250P0 are on top, followed by the Hitachi HDS722525VLAT80. Seagate’s HDDs have got closer to the leader.
Copying small files of Programs and Windows patterns brought victory to the Hitachi team again, but the Seagates did well, too. The drives from Maxtor are not very skilful with small files, as we have already seen in earlier tests.
