Now we format the drives in FAT32. The first diagram that shows the write speeds of the drives says the Seagate is slower than the others.
Seagate improves its reputation in the file read test. Although it is still far behind the leader, the Maxtor OneTouch II, it delivers almost the same performance as the two other opponents.
The Seagate seems to take the overall third place in this test – a little behind the Maxtor OneTouch of the first generation.
The Seagate shows a higher efficiency when copying files from one partition to another. It now takes the second place in three patterns and the third in the other two patterns.
