That is an interesting question.

Generally speaking, it depends on three things.

 

The type of usb storage device you are connecting to the PC . USB 3.0 and 3.0 (Type C) are the fastest 

 

The power of the CPU and chipset in your desktop.  At least a quad processor and fast chipset.

 

The type of disk that contains the folder. The M.2 NVMe SSD is currently  the fastest ssd o the planet. SATA600 is the norm and the next fastest.

 

Otherwise you will indeed will be waiting for hours.

I don't know that this File Manager is any faster than the default one in Windows, but lately, I have been using it a lot and like the details it provides.

 

You should try it -- it's free:  http://multicommander.com/

 

Good Luck
