System Bogs Down While Transferring Files
I've got a decent machine with a fresh install of Win7 32 bit.* Everything seems to working fine, but I notice that, just like with my previous XP system, transferring files from one storage drive to another (even internal to internal) bogs down the entire system quite a bit. This has always been the case, but I was hoping it would be better under Windows 7.
I'm talking about moving files from one logical data storage drive to another, without involving the C: drive and OS (directly, at least). Going from an internal drive to an external drive is even worse. The system doesn't slow to a crawl or lock up but I notice a considerable drop off in all the other functions. Is this typical for everyone? It just seems that with hardware improvements in drives and motherboards, this would get better with time.
* BTW, we're talking about a Gigabyte EP45-UD3P mb with a Core 2 Quad 2.67ghz processor and 4 gb DDR2 ram. Not blazing by any means but respectable for everyday work.

Ah, one of my pet peeves - it's not just you.
It's retarded; we have these CPUs running at gigahertz speeds and SSDs that can boot the OS so fast the login screen appears before the Win7 animation finishes, but just try to put an optical disc into the drive and refresh windows explorer and things immediately stall.
Each time people talk about the next MS OS I feel disappointed because they shelved the next gen filesystem - which is supposed to have smarter disc i/o - yet again.
