    Has to me, both hard drive transfers and lan transerfs - be they 100mb or 1gb are back up to what they should be, and i even get a boost when backing up my dvd collection 99fps on x264.

    So far im well happy with it :p

    (prob jinxed it now but who cares)

    do me favor carpo if you don't mind;

    copy a file to a folder, then move the same file to that folder, tell me if it has trouble overwriting the file

    I cannot for the life of me figure out why vista has less trouble moving a file to an empty folder then if it has to overwrite the file

    let me know if they fixed that

    got no issue here - just the file exists what would you like to do

    and then it overwrote it - you on about big files or little files - or maybe just all files :)

    for me, any overwrite takes minutes, if there is nothing to overwrite it takes no time at all

    I know there is supposed to be a feature where if the os is overwriting a file it's able to examine and just overwrite the data that's new but I think the technology needs to be perfected, it takes forever to overwrite and I wind up cancelling the action, deleting the original file and then I do the drag and drop

    Working well. Transfer between external drives seem to be the same.

    Transfers are so much faster than before, other than that I havent really noticed anything else.

    My machine does seem a bit snappier, am actually looking forward to re-installing the OS with it integrated to see if that makes even more of a difference.
