Only takes about 1 second to copy a 5 MB file here... between folders on the
same drive.... with no computation, while there's a 9 GB network file
transfer going on in the background.
Are you copying to an internal drive, network, CD/DVD, USB drive?
Do you have SP1?
Do you have Remote Differential Compression turned on? Try turning it off.
Control Panel - Programs and Features (Classic View) - Turn Windows Features
on or off
Vista Home Premium 32 SP1
