Often the files I'm moving are large media files from 500 Mb to 8 GB. Does the size make a difference to any negative ramifications? Maybe a greater chance of slow access to a movie or something?
Since the available space on the hard disc is probably not all lined up neatly anyway (defragmented, I think), perhaps it doesn't matter.
Now what about more than two at the same time? Can I drag and drop 10 groups of files to a hard drive simultaneously? Well, I know I can, but I want to follow best practices. Mainly, my priority is reducing the possibility of data corruption. Secondly, reading performance.
Does it make a difference on the type of destination storage media? I use NTFS hard discs (internal and external), internal SSD, and SD cards.
Does it make a difference if I'm doing this within Windows 7 or 8, Android or OS X?
Thanks for any info on this!
