We have a Windows 2003 Server SP2 just running File Services. Every since it was upgraded from Small Business Server it continually stops responding when trying to copy large amounts of data across to it.

We also run our AV software and a CM database on it but these seem to work fine.

Latley we have tried to run a few windows updates manually and this also causes the server to stop responding.

Any ideas would be greatley appreciated.

Sounds like a bad/outdated NIC driver that neads to be updated or reinstalled.
Also check if there's new firmware for the NIC.

Thanks for your suggestion. In the end we swapped out the two 500gb drives an put in the original 300gb drives that came with the machine. reloaded all software and we no longer get this problem.
