If the two directories are on the same physical hard disk drive then the head will get very busy seeking back and forth between the two directories during the copy and you'll get much slower transfer rates than if you are copying from one drive to another. That's just the way disk drives work.

And if its an older slower drive then it might "transfer slow". Which is why I asked for specs.
