Thanks. I wasn't planning on disabling system restore. I think the authors advice is not good advice, and I won't use any of the tips from his web site, except the remote differential compression.
I wasn't suggesting that disabling system restore would help solve my file copy problem, I was just wondering if the author was giving good advice, which by concensus he wasn't.
I have S/R turned on. I have shrunk the space so that I get around a maximum of 8-10 restorepoints, and I have it turned on for more than one drive, since I split operating system and applications across multiple drives.
when I get my system to a stable point I take a system image (which is stored on a remote USB drive), and that only changes when I make considerable changes to my system that I feel is now stable. So I think I'm inline with peoples advice. thanks
As an aside, What seems to have solved the file copy speed was the netsh global parameter changes and the remote differential compression. Copy speed went from 8MBps to 111MBps using a 4GB file as a test.
