Do you have the same problem if you use a TMemoryStream instead? =
RetreiveRaw() has to perform a lot of small writes to the target stream. =
TMemoryStream is more optimized than TStringStream when it comes to =
allocating, reallocating, and accessing the stream's internal memory.

That is old-style Pascal file I/O. If you switch to TMemoryStream, you =
gain access to its SaveToFile() method. If you continue using =
TStringStream, you should at least use VCL-style file I/O instead. Look =
at the FileCreate() and FileWrite() functions. Or, use a separate =
TFileStream and call its CopyFrom() method.
