To test real life performance of a drive we use a mix of folder/file types and by using the FastCopy utility (which gives a time as well as MB/s result) we record the performance of drive reading from & writing to a 256GB Samsung SSD850 PRO.
100GB data file.
60GB iso image.
60GB Steam folder – 29,521 files.
50GB File folder – 28,523 files.
12GB Movie folder – 24 files (mix of Blu-ray and 4K files).
10GB Photo folder – 621 files (mix of .png, raw and .jpeg images).
10GB Audio folder – 1,483 files (mix of mp3 and .flac files).
5GB (1.5bn pixel) photo.
The DCP1000 is much more adept at handling larger files than the small bity files of everyday office use in both RAID 0 and RAID 1.
Just to see how fast the drive could transfer files we tested transfers from folder to folder on the drive. Once the SATA interface of our usual Samsung transfer drive was out of the way the drive really showed its muscle in RAID 0 but once again only on large file sizes. Our 100GB data file was moved between folders at 2,572MB/s or give to a better idea it took just 39.8 seconds to do it. The 5GB photo took 1.7 seconds and the BluRay movie a mere 17.5 seconds.
