For the past few hours, I've been trying to copy a file to my flash drive. It's been taking a few minutes. But when I'm trying to copy multiple files, it's taking a lot longer. Is this supposed to happen? Any way I can speed this up?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Out of curiosity, what are the sizes of the files you’re trying to move?

    Multiple files mean, there are several files that could be various sizes. So naturally it takes longer times to copy them. Also is this USB drive 3.0/2.0 if you insert USB 2.0 it takes longer time than 3.0.

    It's not the number of files it is the size of the data being moved. 20 files of 50K each will move faster than 3 file of 3200M. It can also be the speed of your USB drive. Look at the UBS connection and see what color is inside. he USB 2.0 (white) are slower than the newer 3.0 (blue)

    There is a some information missing from the question. The most important though what speed is the USB Drive? One two or three. The copy speed will vary between the 3 of them. Also, how big are the files?

    If the current process of copy has not yet finish and you copy another file or different files it will be slow and a lot got to do with the type of USB that you are using too.
