tested and its true old files transfer faster than new ones. why?
Because of their locations on the platter(s). Platters are circular and spin at a fixed speed, but that does mean more data passes under the head on the edge than in the centre.
Have you tested your drives with HDTune? The Blue line is the sequential speed.
When nearly empty this drive can provide 150MB/sec file copies. But as it fills up that drops, eventually hitting just ~60MB/sec.
