File transfer speeds on Win 7 GIGABIT network ?

I get approx 70 MB/sec when transferring files on my windows 7 WORKGROUP network, everything on the network is GIGABIT enabled, (3 PC's, 1 Router, 1 gigabit switch, cat6 cables), so does an average speed of 70 MB/sec sound about right. tia

Windows 7 32 bit

Sounds about right to me for copying one large file say a video several GB in size. My setup was just 2 PCs. An AMD dual core with a gigablit card I added on, and an AMD quad core with built in gigabit wired ethernet. On my setup copying in one direction seemed a bit faster than the other. The fastest seemed to be sending from the quad core to the other machine. But even in the reverse direction I got about 80% of the speed. Seems I recall copying say a 5 GB file from the quad to the dual would start out at over 90 MB/s then taper off to a steady 60 MB/s or so. So I'd say you're in good shape.

thanks for that re-assurance, I've also noticed that effect when copying some files it starts sometimes @ 80 - 100 MB/s then pretty quickly settles down to around 70 MB/s and I'm quite happy with that speed, cheers

What is the factor that affects file transfer speeds between HDDs?
What is the factor that affects file transfer speeds between HDDs? The transfer speed is slower when I'm transferring a large file from one hard drive to another as compared to when I'm transferring the same file from the latter to the former.
