How to copy files to ESXi local Datastore

Hi,

I know that you can import files from your local PC to ESXi local datastore using the Vsphere Client , I find this slow - any other ways of importing or copying files i.e. locally attached USB (on ESXi Server)?

You can use th vCenter Server but that would also be over the network as well.

I assume you are getting slow speed because of your computer or network speeds. Maybe even the server.

I find the client to be very quick myself with uploading files to the ESXi datastores.

How fast is your internal storage?  It's not just network speed but also how fast is the IO bus to which your drives are connected.

I would highly recommend looking into Veeam FastSCP, as "bbnp.." suggested.

It may not be super fast (for your situation, nothing really can be), but may be faster than local workstation copying.
