My configuration use to work with good speed under VISTA but not with Windows 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've read this whole forum line by line and have tried almost everything suggested with no difference in the results.  When I was running VISTA on the same client machine and connected to the same win2003 server, my transfer speeds were about 70% of capacity, which were fine with me, however, my speeds are miserable with Windows 7 Ultra 64bit.  My configuration:

    Workstation:  Dell Precision 490 with 16GB ECC Ram, 2TB Raid 0 C: Drive and a 1TB standalone F: drive.   2 NICS (1. onboard BroadCom NetXtreme 57xx Gigabit controller used for the outgoing internet 2.  Intel Pro MT Gigabit Controller).  Maintenance wise, I'm caught up with the latest updates.

    Server: 2003 Server with 2 GB Ram, 300 MB SCSI C: Drive,  and 1.5 GB Raid 0 F: drive.  1 Dual Channel intel pro MT 1Gb nic and fully caught up mainenance wise. 

    Between these 2 machines is a 1Gb GS108T Switch. 

    As I said with the same exact configuration it use to fly on VISTA, but dead slow on Win7. 

    I see that any transfer (not just over the network) is very slow.  Slow if you go from one directory to another on the same drive.  Slow between 2 drives.

    I'm usually tranfering either expanded large application directories or very large single zip files (500MB - 1.5 GB).  All very slow!

  • Hi,


    If this slow copy issue exists in local drives, I would like to confirm what the result is in Safe Mode.


    Have you tried to update the BIOS and chipset driver for test?
