When transferring large files I get an avg transfer with a pretty good rate of around 50MB/s. Then I tried to transfer a folder that contained around 80K small files (around 1-100KB each) and I'm now getting transfer rates around 200KB/s. Does anyone have any info about why there is such a dramatic loss of write speed?
As you can see in this picture, when it goes fast it is copying a single large file, but when it slows down it copies multiple small files; 300 files 1kb each in 20 secs, should be more like less then 1 second for 300kb. This is only when copying a lot of small files not a lot of large files.
