It tells me it's going to take about 7 hours. For 3 Gig of data.
I copy it from the networked drive to my C drive. This takes about 4 minutes.
I then start copying it to the USB stick. This is varying between 8 minutes and 45 minutes, depending on whether it's copying a big file (fast) or lots of little files (slow).
Now, what the hell is the problem with copying files from the network to a USB stick that suddenly adds all of that time on? Why do the latencies multiply?
