Windows 7: "Send To" much faster @ file transfer than any other Windows Process?

"Send To" much faster @ file transfer than any other Windows Process?

On my se7en x64 Ent. systems as long as I have a destination in the "Send To" menu, no matter if it's on another partition, drive or the size of the transfer it is much faster than Explorer's cut or copy and seems to be as fast as "Fast Copy" is plus, unlike the regular file transfer process in windows if it runs into a problem file it will continue after you answer/address the problem. Has anybody else noticed this or know the reason why?

Yes I have noticed that "Send To" is fast & very easy to use, so I certainly agree with you there.

I assume as it is just a one step process, it is faster than cut or copy & paste which requires copying to the clipboard & then pasting to the destination.

Glad it works for you too. Even when my AV stops it or any BS error pops up it will finish the transfer. Got to love that.
