    SSD 'pausing' when installing or copying multiple very small files


    Win 10 Pro 64-bit, version 1909

    I have two drives in my PC, a Crucial SSD for my main drive (model: CT2000MX500SSD1) and a hard drive acting as my D: drive (used as a backup) - model: Toshiba HDWD120. Both are SATA drives.

    I've not had any problems with the SSD since installing it in my PC a month or so ago, however I've just had to install some software which has many hundreds of very small config files and it seemingly took forever - the main problem is that every few seconds the installation pauses, in fact I can't do anything on my PC at all during these pauses.

    Even uninstalling the software and the multiple files takes a very long time (but not as long as installing).

    As an experiment I tried installing the same software onto my hard drive and that went just fine, there were a few very brief pauses but nothing like I see with the SSD.


    Is this indicating a problem with the SSD, the way Windows 10 is utilising it or some SSD performance issue that I'm not aware of ?


    Thanks

    :)

    Java.nio.file - Copying files

    You can't copy a folder, thats why it generates an exception (you are trying to copy a folder using a copy file function).
    You probably need to list all the files inside that folder and copy one by one
