System Bogs Down While Transferring Files
I've got a decent machine with a fresh install of Windows 7 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 Windows 7 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.
