I had a previous issue which made me decide to reinstall Manjaro. I moved my home directory to an HDD, then put a fresh install on my M.2 drive. I am transferring about 700GB of games and media via overwriting the new home directory with the old one from the HDD.
When it starts out, it transfers at a reasonable rate for sending from a a 7200rpm HDD to a SATA M.2 directly on the hard drive, about 170mib/s, implying the transfer will take roughly an hour. Unfortunately, after a few minutes, it drops down to about 20, then 12, then 2, and now it is transferring at 500kbps implying the transfer will take roughly 300 hours. It jumps back up to 2 and sometimes as high as 12. This is a click and drag via Thunar, if that matters.
-Yes, fstrim.timer is running
-No, neither of these drives are connected via USB, don’t be silly
-No, nothing is being transferred via network
Any tips? My winman is i3 on both the new and old install.
