    Were you doing a benchmark when you captured that? Writing one long file would look smoother, I would think, but random read/writes of smaller files might look choppy.

    Maybe ask the person who wrote that program because he'd know better how to interpret that.

    And a highly fragmented drive might look choppy, too.
