I have a Win 7 machine trying to bring a simple 55Meg file across from a mapped drive off an SBS 2003 server. It CRAWLS through discovery and then says it will take 2 HOURS.

The strange thing is the copy even hangs when you go old school and use copy, xcopy, etc at the command prompt.

Has anyone come up with a definitive answer for all this Win 7 file transfer slowness??  I have other Win 7 machines on different networks with an SBS 2003 server and I do not have this problem.

I have tried all the int tcp set stuff.
