Why are file transfers taking days instead of minutes?

I'm working on a 2009-built MacBook Pro with about 60GB of local space. I'm looking to transfer everything to a 2TB external USB thumb drive (yes), and it's working at the slowest pace I may may ever seen file transfers more...like hours for even HALF a gigabyte. Is there a way to speed this up? ha

Thank you.

...And, yes, I am heavily debating buying a new MacBook.

Some "thumb drives" can be excruciatingly slow to write to but a 2TB one....

Download the Blackmagic Disk Speed Test app from the Apple App Store and see what sort of read/write speeds your thumb drive is giving.
