overeasy Level 2 Level 2 (185 points)

Hi -


I use a Mac Pro at work with the following config:


Processor  2 x 2.66 GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon

Memory  8 GB 1333 MHz DDR3 ECC

Graphics  ATI Radeon HD 5770 1024 MB

Software  Mac OS X Lion 10.7.5 (11G63)


When copying even small files (like a 300k PDF) from the desktop to a USB stick, it is

incredibly slow.  Can take up to 20 secs to do the xfer.  Clearly something is amiss.  I have

searched for answers online, but came up with nothing.  Since this is a company machine, please

don't tell me to "uprade," 'cause that's out of my hands.


Any ideas?  Is there a finder level pref or cache that might need to be rebuilt?
