NTFS File System
Now we’ll run the test again, this time over NTFS partitions.
It’s overall the same as in FAT32 but with minor changes: the RAID5 arrays do not speed up in the Programs pattern and are always slower than the single disk. The performance of the mirrored arrays has become lower relative to the single disk and RAID0 arrays. The speeds of all the arrays have lowered in every test mode in comparison with FAT32.
The arrays are still rather slow at reading. Comparing them, we can see three differences from the FAT32 results: the RAID10 has become faster relative to the other arrays. The RAID5 arrays show a constant speed irrespective of the number of disks in them. And the most surprising thing, the two-disk RAID0 is the best among the RAID0 arrays!
The standings haven’t changed in comparison with FAT32 although the speeds have become somewhat lower.
