PCPer File Copy Test

PC Perspective File-Copy Test v0.3


Our custom PCPer-FC test does some fairly simple file creation and copy routines in order to test the storage system for speed.  The script creates a set of files of varying sizes, times the creation process, then copies the same files to another partition on the same hard drive and times the copy process as well.  There are four file patterns that we used to try and find any strong or weak points in the hardware: 10 files @ 1000 MB each, 100 files @ 100 MB each, 500 files @ 10 MB each and 1000 files at 1 MB each.

File creation times were slower than all but the 40GB SSDNow V with the Intel G2 controller.  File copies were also on the slow side, held back by the slower write speeds
