NTFS Tests


ATTO

Let’s start these tests again with ATTO.
This time all the tests will be performed with the drive formatted with NTFS.
So let’s see how the ADATA DashDrive performs.

The result is impressive, as we can see the
drive shows a more solid performance. It looks like NTFS is the correct file
system. The ADATA DashDrive Elite was able to reach 92MB/Sec write and
110MB/Sec read speeds.


CrystalDiskMark

My second test will be performed using
CrystalDiskMark, as I said before this tool can give a more detailed view of the
overall performance of the ADATA DashDrive Elite.

Again the ADATA DasDrive gives a very
impressive performance, and as you can see from the picture, no slowdowns this
time.

 


Conclusion

The ADATA DashDrive showed it’s pace with
the NTFS file system and on some tests it was able to give great results. So if
you don’t have a specific need for the obsolete FAT32 file system, the first
thing you need to do is re format the drive.
