As Title and the screenshot;

The folder copied to Sandisk SSD because much bigger;

Source Device/FS: Macbook / APFS
Target Device/FS: Extreme SSD / exFAT 

Any solution?

[ Edited ]

how many files are in the folder? is it a lot of very small files? 

 

can you try reformatting into a different file system and see if you see the same issue?

 

also is this an extreme SSD connected with a cable or enclosure or is this the extreme portable USB SSD?
