  • Hi,

    In my opinion, Windows file copy on Windows Explorer GUI level is not multiplethread file copying, only when using comamnd or utility like Robocopy, then we can copy file using multiplethread.

    You can refer to the content of the link below for more details about Robocopy:

  • Thank you for the opinion. It is possible started due to MSDN edition of Windows and/or External USB->SATA drive.

    It just normally works at about 100MB/s but dropped to 50, I watched it under resource monitor. Now I am back on Win7Pro and it does not matter anymore.

    Thank you any way.
