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.
We use the following real-world folder/file types:
- 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).
