    Hey!! We bugged things and it's down to Microsoft to deal with it.

    I volunteered to beta but wasn't accepted - funny I found the issue within a
    day of testing - but I'm not good enough for the group that passed it out
    the door after a year of beta testing.

    I fixed my problem by making everything Vista.
    I tried:
    Vista to XP = slow
    XP to Vista = slow
    Vista to Linux = fast
    Linux to Vista = slow
    2000 to Vista = slow
    Vista to 2000 = slow

    Vista to Vista = Fast either way. Except when play music or using
    Skype.

    Kinda obvious what Microsoft has done here isn't it.

    Same exact issue here. Copying large amounts of files from WHS to Vist
    averages about 4-5 Mbps. I have a very fast system with SATA 3.0 drives
    Gig NICs, Netgear GS108 Gig switch, and never had problems doing casua
    small copies. Only with large amounts of files.

    Tried all the things suggested above, and no luck. The thing that di
    make a big difference was to disable the Windows Firewall on both end
    and Windows Defender on Vista. Suddenly the transfer speed started goin
    up, all the way to 47 Mbps, then averaged at about 20. I then starte
    another batch copy, and now it is doing about 8.5 Mbps. Totall
    frustrating to say the least. Copying in XP is way faster. Mos
    definitely a Vista issue that Microsoft needs to address
