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.
