Good morning Experts,
I recently bought a 2tb hard-drive to facilitate fast copying from one folder to another within the drive itself. This is my first experience with ssd drives so, I will try to act like I know what I am doing. To be clear I am not interested in bulk copying files to another folder within the ssd drive. that works fairly well. what has got me stumped is that I have thousands of images that I have to look at on a daily basis one at a time and determine if they go in the keep image folder or the archive folder. The files are on average between 300kb and 500kb.
I transferred about 13gb to the ssd drive with TeraCopy from a HDD drive. I did not have any problems with the HDD I used to use for copying to one folder or another. I was just reading how fast ssd drives are and thought "Hey my copying to one folder or another will be much faster than doing it with a HDD drive. So I went to amazon and ordered a:
I have the ssd drive plugged into one of the usb ports in front of my computer. for completeness , my computer is a:
To continue, I started copying one file after another to my "keep folder" or the "archive folder" using windows explorer. Immediately, I noticed the lagged time. On the original HDD I had the files on , I could copy one file after another instantaneously, but now I have to wait one to two seconds to copy from one folder to another. The mouse holds the file while I hover over one or the other folder then it allows me to drop the file in the appropriate folder. This is unacceptable for the work I do.
So I did some searching on my own to try and fix the problem. Below are my results"
Well that's it in a nutshell experts. I hope I have explained the problem well enough. I look forward to your input.

Reputable Flash Drives are more expensive than that. I would expect a 2TB external drive to be north of $125
2TB USB HDDs at that price but not SSDs, 2TB
