Hi, just received a WINNINGWAY 64GB SDXC Card and tried to launch the homebrew launcher and loadiine on my WII U, it's working perfectly.
I have an issue though, when it comes to copying many little files, the SD Card takes much longer for the copy.
For example: If I copy a large file, let's say 1GB, I will be at a rate of 10MB/s, but with let's say 1000 files worth of 1GB, the rate would go down to 20kB/s...
Is there anyway to speed up the process ? Any program that would copy large amount of files in a "smarter" way than windows ?

that behavior is quite normal for storage as that's how data transfers work. there isn't many things that can help it, and for the most part, you are at the whim of the data, as well as the write speed of the SD card you have.

When you're copying one file, it can copy at the maximum speed because there's no overhead of having to create the file on the SD Card.
When copying thousands of little files, you will find that your speed drops because Windows has to stop copying and create a new file on the SD Card to store some of the new data in.

If you haven't already, enable write caching for your SD in Windows. (And make sure you use Safe Removal from that point forward)

Thanks for your advices and explanations, well I think I'm just going to wait until copying is finished ^^
My brother bought Xenoblade Chronicles and gave me his backup, wanted to try it like two hours ago, but still copying files (more than 20k files, which is a lot ^^)
Anyway, thank you !
