Windows 7: Let's face it: Windows 7 copies files slower than Vista

01 Feb 2009   #11

 
 

I noticed a definite slowdown in file operations over the network. I have several computers I use at once. The one I sit in front of as my interface to what is basically a home cluster. Windows 7 can take as much as a minute or totally hang when trying to perform file ops over the network. It's become so much of a pain I've resorted to using the Remote Desktop app when I need to work with files on another computer.

And yes, feedback sent.

I disagree.

Windows 7 copies files much faster than Vista, especially to and from my NAS box

From what it looks like, some people are not having the same issues as some of us are. The only way we could figure out why some people are having slow downs and some speed ups is by actually testing... But this is definitely interesting.

For the people that are seeing performance gains, are you perhaps using SSD's, Raid setups, or something else that's uncommon for the regular user? Are you using Nehalem setups?

EDIT: After looking at the system specs of you guys most of the people that are experiencing performance gains use Nehalem. Interesting...

Slightly off-topic

It's kind of funny if you take a close look: File-Copy/Move wasn't really nice in XP, in Vista they messed it up (frist, at least - getting better with SPs); now it seems to be the same in Windows 7. What's so hard about this function?

I'm using Killcopy since back on XP and it works fine on Vista & Windows 7. It's so much more efficient, handy and free. So why don't the Microsoft-programmers just let them be inspired by the tools from others?

Options like

  • Skip this file and continue
  • Retry, if it fails again skip
  • Pause/Continue process
  • Continue copy/move after crash
  • Parallel read/write
  • Speed-Limit
  • Reserve Space before copy/move
  • Verify copy
  • Shutdown after copy/move
  • ...

seem to be rocket science to Microsoft. It's bin in Killcopy for years.

For those who want to try:
KillCopy

...don't panic about the URL, the programmer IS russian

: Download and set the Vista-Skin at once - the default one is extremely ugly.
