kf10, depends on the speed of your hard disk. Remembering that it has to reposition the heads twice for a same disk copy and only once for a copy to an external device..

richnrock is right, same hard disk means it's moving the head a lot more. Flash devices can be faster as well, but that's probably not the case here.

This is why I like to load my games on one disk and my OS on another :)
