As I said in an earlier message. There's no such term as "Transfer" as you are using it. The term is "Move". "Transfer" is a generic term that just refers to the process of sending data from one...

That's true, however USB is still half as fast as the average drive performance. And USB has a great deal of overhead.

What that means is that SATA can handle the full transfer speed of the...

Yes, an internal drive will be faster than USB in most cases. Typically significantly faster.

USB 2.0's maximum transfer rate is 480 Mbit/s, which in practice is nowhere near that. Internal...

USB storage is typically pretty slow. You don't mention whether you are copying to a flash drive, or an external HDD.

zzz2496, You don't care where stuff is stored?

How secure would it be if you could just unencrypt it?

In that case, the problem is that your shortcut is to an item on removable storage. When windows boots, it doesn't load the storage until some later time. So the icon "link" gets broken.

No, nobody can help you out. The files are lost. If you don't have the certificate, then you can't access the files. Your fault.

Well, something isn't right, because the Windows Boot screen does not say Windows 7, it just says "Starting Windows". Or do you mean the login screen at the bottom?

Ok, so Destination Host Unreachable is kind of interesting. What it means is that Windows doesn't know how to find the host, not that it can't ping it. This means there is no route to the subnet...

When you are pinging, are you pinging the IP Addresses? Or are you pinging the computer name?

Are the IP Addresses set manually? Or are they being autoconfigured by DHCP?
