Specs: Windows 7
why copying of two files with the same capacity takes slow. Let's say im going to copy 1gb of files takes only 3minutes but when i try to copy another 1gb of file at the same time, it should be 6 minutes but why it takes 30 minutes?

You're probably causing disk thrashing as the system copies a bit of one file, then the other, and so on. The heads are moving all over the place and slowing things down drastically. See what happens if you select both files and then drag them to the new destination; that should cause them to be copied sequentially as one task. Or just don't copy two files at the same time.
