Hi there, I am experiencing that copying from one external drive to another one is significant slower than using finder.
How come?

I use a Macbook M1 with 16GB Ram and I have a NVME 1TB USB-C Harddrive and the second is a Thunderbolt NVME 2TB Harddrive.
when I copy in finder I get speeds of about 920MB/sec. In Pathfinder I get 420MB/sec its 50% slower.
Using the latest Version of Pathfinder 10.2 (2098)
