[SOLVED] Why are transfering large files faster than transfering small files?

Hello everyone,

Today I transfered files from my USB 3.0 USB stick to my USB 3.0 external HDD. I was confused about one thing. I had one .img file (2,5 GB) and a lot of small files (from 5 kb to 25 kb). When the .img file start to transfer, speed was about 50 mb/s, maybe even faster. When the small files started to transfer, well... only about 280 kb/s, sometimes less. How is this possible? It's because of file size?
