Results - PCMark 7 Secondary Storage Suite

PCMark 7 tests a drive’s overall performance by putting it through different usage scenarios from scanning files using Windows Defender, to transferring and indexing images. All drives were fairly close in this benchmark, with the Canvio 3.0 Plus pulling slightly ahead. One downside of the results from this test suite is that it doesn't quite represent the usage scenario of most external drives.
