I am experiencing incredibly poor performance when copying and moving
files, and yes, even calculating the time to move the files takes just as
long as actually moving the damn files! As this is one of the most basic
features of an OS, you'd think they would ensured it would work correctly.
Seems they've spent more time making things look pretty than actually making
sure the basics work.
I've also noticed that copying files over a network is even worse; on
several occasions I've had to leave it copying files overnight as it was
going to take 3 hours to move 200Mb of files - ridiculous. XP shifted the
files in a couple of minutes. I can't believe they've not done any
benchmarking on this and picked this up pre-release.
I have tried:
1. Running "netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=disable" (Did Not Work)
2. Installing the hotfix at
(Did Not Work)
2a. Hotfixes can be found here:
3. Tried going to Control Panel -> Programs And Features and unchecked
"Remote Differential Compression" (Did Not Work)
4. Disabling the Windows Search service "SearchIndexer.exe" (Did Not Work)
5. Tried going to Control panel -> Folder options -> show icons, never
thumbnails (Did Not Work)
I am all out of ideas. This is a real MS problem. This is one problem that
could take Vista right out of the picture............ for good. Looks like
MS dropped the ball on Vista....even more so than with WinME
