Why is my USB 3.0 connected external hard drive transferring files quicker than my two internal drives? I am using Windows 10.
- Internal Primary: 1TB NVMe Samsung SSD 960 (PCIe Connected)
- Internal Storage: 4TB WDC WD40E31X (SATA Connected)
- External Storage: 2TB USB 3.0 Interface Hard Drive
Now I have a 6.5GB Movie file on my Samsung 960 Pro which I copy to my 4TB WD internal at a rate of 100MB/s
I have the same exact file on my 2TB USB external hard drive which transfers to the same 4TB internal storage Hard Drive at 175MB/s
The same holds true if I try to move 20 large movie files.
Here are some benchmark results from two tools.

I had to remove the links for the drives because i don't have enough reputation to add the benchmark results Can someone please add them back
