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?
USB memory stick are incredibly slow. That is why they are incredibly cheap.
