Windows 7: Problems with transfers

Problems with transfers

I'm having issues with transferring data between hard drives in my system. I have 3 500 GB drives in my system connected via esata. Just a few minutes ago I tried transferring 24.1 GB from one hard drive to another and it took forever I was getting under 10 MB per second.

Once I got everything transfered I created a folder in the drive I moved everything to and then moved the same 24.1 GB plus another folder that was 10 GB and everything transfered into the folder instant, so fast I couldn't every look to see how long it was taking cause it was there the minutes I moved the folders to the new folder.

Why in the hell did it take so long transferring tha same data from one hard drive to another one in my system????? I should be getting a whole lot more than 10 MB per second


I never had these issues when I did the same thing in XP Pro..... what could be wrong??

I just "updated" to windows 7. I took the Hard Drives from the old PC and plugged them into my new build (along with my new 1TB HDD). How do I move my system settings (hopefully desktop, antivirus, and steam account) to my new PC?
