SBS 2011 file copy very slow

I have a new server running SBS 2011. I am trying to copy 3Gig of file from one folder to another and it is running very slowly.  I am verying between 1.75 and 2.5 Meg per second.

What's the deal with all this. Windows 7, SBS 2008 all seem to have the same problem. The file copy process has gotten ridiculously slow.

Can anything be donw?

Do you have an Anti-Virus application running that scans these files?

Could be caused by your security software....check your security software settings.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Disabled all the antivirus activity and it is still very slow.

I have experienced this phenominon in a wide variety of installations. When the commonality is Win 7 or Server 2008 or newer it seems to have this problem.

IS there some new approach to file transfers with the new Win versions?

You cannot disable av in normal mode...best way to find out is boot the computer in safe mode with networking and then try to copy the file.


Try it
