No, I have not received a response from anyone. This issues is like a
blackhole. However, I did seem to mitigate my issues by putting my machines
on a wired network and removing them off my wireless network. I don't get it
because I have a wireless G with "Very Good" to "Excellent" reception on my
Vista clients. But for some reason Vista just does not like the wireless
connection when copying large files or large amount of files. This worked
perfectly on XP. Oh well, I hope this helps you or someone else. If you are
on a wired network, make sure it is a 100MB network and check your cat 5
cables/switches/hubs for any damage or issues that would cause any network
