Hey.

Look into updating your chipset drivers to latest possible.

Open an elevated command prompt and copy/paste this, hit enter:

chkdsk /r C:

Run that for each partition on the system, changing C to match the letter.

You could try to install TeraCopy. It may do something better for you.

If you have AVG uninstall that from the system and do not just disable. Uninstall any other antivirus you may have, as a test if needed.

Then yes, it is AVG causing it. AVG is terrible and this is what happens with it, amongst many other things.

No recommendations. I'm sure others will have them.

Run the installer. No need for anything special.

I am currently backing up files in preparation for my new hardware. I am copying file from a samsung F1 1Tb drive to another identical drive. I thought that these drives were fast, capable of around 40mb/s but atm the process is only managing 19mb/s.

copying small files
Hi all, anyone here could tell me why copying a bunch of small files in Win7 takes so long (transfer rate under 1MB/s)...it's the same in Vista, so here's a case where Win7 didn't improve things. Doing the same sort of operation in XP or Linux can be twenty/thirty times faster. I'd really...
