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.

update - this happens if copying to C drive - other drives don't have this issue

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.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
