How long it'll take transfering 4 GB file in a defragged disk, with these values?

  • 10000 RPM
  • Seek time 2 ms
  • Sector sizes are 4K
  • You don't have the data transfer speed, please calculate it. (bus faster than the disk)

Not enough info:
1 platter or multiple platters?
Is the data on the outer tracks or inner tracks? (there can be a 50% difference in speed)
Transfer speed of the drive is critical and must be known. A drive that can only transfer at 100MB/s will obviously be slower than a drive that can transfer at 150MB/s.

What do YOU think the transfer time should be? Show your work, and we can analyze.
We're not doing your homework for you.

This isn't my question actually this is a question of an exam of mine. The teacher has low IQ, I don't know what is this.
