Writing speed varies from time to time on an external disk connected to USB3


Recommended Posts

I have a 2.5 "WD disk of 5 terabytes connected to a computer in USB3. The writing speed into it varies between 100 megabytes (usually, not always) when copying large files and 5 (!) Megabytes with relatively small files (about 10 g Gigabytes), 

The copying between the internal disks in the computer (all in a SATA connection) of the exact same files is done at a speed of more than 100 MB.


Maybe there is an explanation and a solution?
