When we sit down to testing in NTFS file system, nothing changes, actually. The performance of our testing participants does get a bit lower overall, but that is it. I would only like to point out that Maxtor 5000DV lags a little more behind WD2500B007 especially in Windows and Programs patterns.
File reading names Maxtor 5000DV the winner, as it managed to slightly outpace the rival in every single pattern. As soon as the file size grows bigger, the advantage of the leader increases.
The diagram above shows that during files copying within a single partition, Maxtor 5000DV is evidently defeated by the WD2500B007 solution in Windows and Programs patterns. All other files sets demonstrate certain parity.
During files copying from one partition to another we see that Maxtor drive yields to the rival in the four patterns out of five. Just like in the previous case we see that the lag is the biggest in those patterns, which work with a lot of smaller files.
