Default External Drive thumbnails loading very slow

So I have an external drive connected to my main Alienware Laptop via either usb, I do a lot of photo editing and processing but I've found the biggest time waster for me is whenever I browse through my thumbnail files on any of my external drives, they take such a long time load the thumbnails. I can hear my computer working to load each file's thumbnail and I'm just sitting there watching them appear 1 by 1 with hundreds of files.

Isn't there a way for the computer to cache these thumbnails and remember it each time I shutdown and load up the computer so in the future when I revisit a folder, all the thumbnails should appear instantly? I would estimate 50% of my time is used up simply during the 'waiting for thumbnails to load' process. It would save me enormous amount of time if the thumbnails could just appear instantly.

Any advice?
