Takes Too Long To Copy files from VM to External HDD RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Every one,

    I Have an Issue with my Windows Server 2008 which is in VM. While copying files from this machine to External HDD it is taking too long time to transfer files over the network and our network is about 1 GB line but it is showing as just a maximum of 500 KB/Sec.

    For 500 MB file it is taking 45 minutes to complete the task. We have different other servers on VM but everything was working fine except this server.

    Please Help me out from this issue.

  • Hi

    Look at the network settings on that VM and compare it to another VM you saying is much better.

    Perhaps update the NIC drivers on that server giving the issues.
