How to Prevent File Copying Stuck at 5 seconds Remaining

In Window 10 there is a problem faced by many peoples, the problem is caused when the file is copying. Suddenly it stuck at 5 second. This problem is also faced by me when I tried to copy some files (about 4Gb) including some Documents, Images and Videos to a Pendrive. When I start the process it’s working good and as soon as the files are copying the speed went very slow and the file transferring stuck at 5 seconds remaining.

I waited for About 20-30 minutes but the process still stuck at 5 second. I stopped the process and again I tried to copy files the message came out again that copying files stuck at 5 seconds. Why Windows 10, Windows 8 or Windows 7 copying files hangs ? Any solutions.
