I backup my data from my my HP 8710w laptop using Second Copy. The laptop has a Gigabit NIC. OS is Windows Vista Business.
At the office the Second Copy & the NIC perform at Gigagbit speed.
When I get home the same backup takes 10 times as long (even though I have a Gigabit Netgear switch).
The only way I have been able to speed up the backup is to downgrade the NIC driver to operate at 100MBps Full Duplex.
What's going on? How do I fix it?
