Now we are going to copy the same file-sets into a subfolder.
The top three drives enjoy a big lead over the rest when copying the Install file-set. And there are new names there, too. The previously dominating WD5000YS is now only third while the two top positions are occupied by the best models from Seagate, the ST3750640AS and the ST3500630AS.
In the test of copying large ISO-like files, Seagate again claims the top two places for itself. Maxtor’s drives take up the places from third through sixth. The drives from Western Digital have stumbled here and produced obviously poor results.
The files are smaller, and the drives from Western Digital can copy them quickly again. They are again contending with Seagate’s ST3750640AS and ST3500630AS for the top part of the diagram.
The files getting even smaller, the Hitachi HDS7225050KLA360 becomes engaged into the struggle of Seagate’s and WD’s drives. It first removes the WD5000KS from fourth place and then even becomes the leader.
