i call em as i see them. In fact i rebooted to vista to redo the copy, because with every action i took the copy time lenghtened.
And i copied from one 500 gb sata wdc to another 500 sata wdc.
There's more weirdnesses, i normally run opera as browser, but Hotmail cleverely doesn't adhere to the standards so i'm obliged to start IE8 for that. Frequently it happens im staring at a nonresponsive IE which i can only quit using taskmanager. As i don't use IE normally it's completely virgin setup.
For that reason i installed Firefox, just to be able to read my mail.
I'm not ranting against win7, if i didn't have vista already i'd sure be happy to install it. But i think i'll wait till Windows 7 sp2 to change os's.
i use windows live mail for my hotmail account, its just like outlook express but sexier. other than that i dont even bother with ie8 i just use firefox, safer, faster and looks so much nicer. never had a problem with web page support either.
oh and i just transferred 122gb (7,778 items) and took 32 minutes at a average rate of 70mb/s between drives. dont seem to be any probs with transfer rates dropping.
