Windows 7: File Copy and Moves in Windows 7

File Copy and Moves in Windows 7

I have a NAS server setup with several directories, NOT PARTITIONS, and when I try to move a batch of files from 1 dir. to another, it just crawls at a snails pace. If I do the exact same thing from an XP box, it just flies.

I had 7 gigs of files I tried moving with Windows 7 and it was going to take over 4 hrs. I went to my XP machine and moved the exact same files and it took less the 90 seconds.

This is exactly the same issue that Vista had.

I am using Windows 7 Ultimate RTM (MSDN). Fully legal.

Anyone have a clue as to fix this?

I hated Vista andother than this issue, so far I really like Win 7.

Try RichCopy or KillCopy. Google should get links. Both are free.

I appreciate that but I'm looking for a fix and the root cause, not a workaound.

Windows 7 32 bit

Did it always do it or did the problem just pop up? If the latter, it's probably a windows "fix" that fixed it. If I have a system that works well, I don't let them put any "fixes" on it. If it ain't broke...

I'm running Windows 7 7077 and I never experiences any of that. Vista 32 bit before SP1 acted like that. I can't put SP1 on my 32 bit Vista so I'm running Windows 7 on that machine. On that machine and my Vista64 SP1 unless I'm copying thousands of files I just use the Explorer shell drag & drop. Didn't even put TeraCopy on Windows 7 machine. That's one reason I suspect a fix problem.
