How to make copy work faster

I am trying to copy a folder which contains a list of C executables.


It takes 2 mins for completion,where as the entire script takes only 3 more minutes for other process.


Is there a way to copy the folder faster so that the performance of the script will improve?

I have a script which performs env set up kind of action and it takes 6 minutes to complete.


Out of the 6 minutes,1.5 minutes is being spent to copy a folder which contains executables.


I am jus doing a cp -rf....


So i want to try an alternative if there is any to save some time.....


I tried to tar and then copy....but that too accounts to the same amount of time
