Windows 7: ridiculously slow file transfers

ridiculously slow file transfers

when i copy a large group of files (say a couple of gigs or so) to a different folder it runs at a whopping 8-10 MB/s to copy them, i know vista had an issue with copying files but this was meant to be fixed, is this a known issue with win7? i notice it happens on both X86 and X64.... now i KNOW my hard drive is capable of doing 80MB/s (roughly) and does on Ubuntu, so i assume its an OS issue,

now maybe its just me, but surely an Operating system should be able to do something as simple as copy files at a decent rate?

It's not the OS.

There's something wrong with your setup. You can begin by installing the latest chipset/sata/motherboard drivers.

Also use HDTune to help you diagnose.

well i installed the latest drivers and just did a quick test its tanked them up to 40MB/s which then drops off slowly to 30MB/s during the course of the copy, which is alot better, thank you torrentg, dont know why i didnt think of that before.....
