Because it's external, dude :hihi: External drives always have long access time, especially when they fall into sleep mode.

Because it doesnt matter how fast the hard drive is, the speed of the transfer is still limited by the speed of the slowest part of that device chain, including the data connection.

Yes, connect it to a USB 3.0, USB 3.1 or USB-C port with a USB 3 or USB-C cable, NOT with a USB 2.0 cable.

No, do not connect your hard drive to Michael Stipe. He doesnt like it.
