    When copying multiple things does OS X prioritise first, or does it split everything so that everything transfers at the same rate?

    If you mean by initiating multiple copy actions, I'd say it priorities on a first come first serve basis.

    I copy the first set of folders to a given destination, then I initiate a second copy to another destination. I've noticed that the first action seems to get more attention then the second. nothing scientific just my observance
