Windows 7: XP Mode slow copying to host

16 May 2011   #11

Windows 7 Unltimate x64

First I found this, which seemed to work: (the registry change should be done on the host (Win7) machine, not the XP machine)
Workaround for Windows VPC networking slowness between host and guest

Then a coworker showed me how to disable this without the registry edit:
Start->Control Panel->Network and Sharing Center->Chagne Adapter Settings->Dbl-click 'Local Area Connection'->
Properties->Configure->Advanced-> Disable TCP Checksum Offload and UDP Checksum Offload (one each for IPv4 and IPv6)

This worked for me. I hope it helps you.

Thanks I will try that. Do you happen to know if it affects anything in Windows 7??
I am not really sure what I am doing when I disable those settings.

You know, it must effect something. But my coworker says they set it all the time in certain situations. I haven't noticed any ill effects since I made the change. I googled a bit trying to find what it really does and only found others asking the same question!

Thanks, actually I was told by someone who knows a lot more than I do that the setting if disabled will have the cpu do the checksums instead of the nic card. He said in his opinion it would only make a difference in very very large data transfers.

So thanks I am going to do it and I can always change it back if I see any problems.

I am currently backing up files in preparation for my new hardware. I am copying file from a samsung F1 1Tb drive to another identical drive. I thought that these drives were fast, capable of around 40mb/s but atm the process is only managing 19mb/s.

Host access now incredibly slow
If I access a shared file on the host through the network the access times are awful. The network performance is crawling along. It takes hours to copy large files. However when accessing other machines on the network the access times are lightning as I'd expect. This slow network performance makes...
