Network Usage

When I transfer a file lets say a .mpg (600-800 megs in size) my network usage is only in the 60's .... to find that i was in Windows Task Manager under the network tab. Is 60-70 ok or can it go more?

Thanks

I guess you have a 100Mbit card, yes? This means that the card has more capacity than your computer can handle. For instance the harddisk you are copying from (or to) may not be able to handle larger streams of data. 60% of 100Mbit/s = 60% of 12,5MB/s = 7,5 MB/s which is pretty normal. If you had copied the file from RAM-disk to RAM-disk (BIG ramdisk in this case :p) it probably would get faster.

Yeah I do have a 100mbit card, it's in my signature. Also the hard drives i'm copying from is a WD 5400 rpm drive (10.2 gig) at ATA 66 and my drive is the Maxtor 7200rpm drive (30 gig) at ATA 100
Is there a way i can speed it up a little?

Probably not. 7.5 is really good. Everything over 6 is good. Be happy :)

(Unless you want to try a RAID array or SCSI-drive, and I really think you don't)
