    I have a SSD and I'm copying 2.5 GB of mp4 videos from my desktop to a desktop folder and it's so agonizingly slow. I have a $2,500 desktop computer so my computer isn't crap . It can handle anything I throw at it.

    Is there something in the settings I can change or something?

    It's been copying the 2.5 GB of files for 3 minutes now

    You need to elaborate more, you are copying from your desktop to a folder on your desktop? Is it from another drive, is it SSD to SSD.. give details.
