I updated the question with a second screenshot. @whs Perhaps you are right and the hard drive is just too slow to keep up with the SSD? I did three tests and got the exact same behavior, which to me seems weird. If it were random head movement, wouldn't the reads/writes look a little more random? It's very cyclical.

@whs Would the only way to test this be by having a second SSD that provides the source file?

@sawdust It was a 15gb file, but I don't recall how long the entire copy took. I can try it again tonight to get total time and see how long it's in the high write speed each cycle.

@whs The file was copied from a separate (platter) hard drive. I did check it and didn't see any significant dips below about 80 MB/s read.

comment Move the Public folders on Windows 7
This is for sure easier if your permissions allow you to edit the location box. But as Omar originally wrote, there are cases where it's not editable.
