    Could be a number of things:
    - the pen drive read/write speed,
    - Defender may be scanning it en route,
    - perhaps Trackers are being written to the pen drive as well...

    Nothing wrong with those speeds.

    A standard pendrive is quite slow. Particularly as I guess it is a rather old 8 GB one, and it appears to be 1 GB files.
    You will find out if you do a lot of very small files it will be a lot slower than that 6 MB/s.

    I have an old 4 GB Kingston pendrive, under test it is 6.82 MB/s with 3 x 1 GB + 1 x 760 MB files.

    There is always that initial peak, it means nothing.
