Why is copying features so slow compared to simply copying the file geodatabase?

I would like to copy features from a file geodatabase stored on a local volume to a file geodatabase on a networked share. If I copy the file geodatabase it transfers at around 12MB/s (on a 100baseT ethernet network). If I try to copy the feature layer from within ArcMap (10.2) it transfers at around 1KB/s. This is 12,000 times slower! Why is this and is there any way to speed it up, or should I resort to copying the entire geodatabase which is much faster?
