I am trying to transfer a 100 Gb file from Server 2003 to Server 2008. The 2008 box is 64 bit, 2003 is 32 bit if that matters.
File transfers quit after about 4 Gb. I installed an FTP server on the 2008 box and that gets about halfway but still fails repeatedly. I'm remoting into this office, I'm trying to avoid the 'plug in a detachable hard drive' solution.
I can compress the file some... but that takes 8 hours each way. The file transfer would only take 20 minutes... if it would work.
Can anyone offer advice?
