I am trying to move a 40 gb .edb file to another server.  What is the quickest way to do so?  Cut and paste keeps telling me insufficient resources.

GO to a command prompt and use Xcopy:

Maybe something like:

XCOPY <source path> <destination path> /a /v

I had exactly the same problem before. the above is correct use xcopy but also add the /z switch which copies network files in restartable mode. but i did see that the file copy took slightly longer
