File system transfer task is based upon a realistic set of figures that can be each day therefore utilising a 10GB Data Set contained 2704 Folders and within these folders a further 32,241 various files. This test data set has been made up containing Word Documents, Abode PDF’s, Excel Spread sheets, BMP and PNG files, various driver files and programmes, and last but not least several major applications. The Windows Shadow Back-Up (this also included a full system image of the primary boot disc Drive C) sized in at 37.6GB of system data and files.
Before commencing each of the file transfer tests the Western Digital boot hard drive was completely defragmented, the system rebooted in order to achieve optimal performance whilst completing the File Transfer’s and the Windows Shadow Back-Up and System Image.

A simplistic but realistic test of day to day proceedings that demonstrate each of the SSD’s capabilities whilst under stress in file transfer mode. Whilst some individuals look for the actual raw IOP’s performance (as seen below) others will readily the many just ask – just how fast and therefore we see from the table above just how quickly each delivers these factual times in delivery. Reiterating; each SSD has its own merits and place within both Desktop and Enterprise space. It’s very difficult to comprehend that only 18 months ago to complete a Windows Shadow Back-Up on the modern single spindle discs at that period of time would have taken in excess of fifty (50) minutes to fully complete. Technology in within these areas has most certainly flown forward.
