    Control Panel -> Programs & Features -> Turn Windows features on or off


    Turn off: 'Remote Differential Compression'


    It describes itself as 'Computes & transfers the differences between two objects over a network using minimal bandwidth', but I'd swear it speeds up local copy as well!!

    Does not seem to help for me at least. Vista 64 bit (my 32 bit is slow too) w/SP1. SATA drives, 8 GB RAM.


    Tips that Robocopy/etc....? Well, that is as slow.


    :-( sad as I seem to be one of the few that love VISTA otherwise-ck
