file transfer from Server 2012 std slow

Last Modified: 2016-02-21
Running Server 2012 STD with AD and set up as file server. Network is gigabit and managed switches. When we transfer files from the server to the workstations, max speed is around 11.5MB/s (95mbps).  If I run Passmark performance test between server and workstation the transfer speed is around 106MB/s (853mbps). This obviously means that there is nothing wrong with the network as such. Any idea what it could be? - wondered if there isn't a limit on transfer speed set in file server, however cannot find anything.

Thanks for any help in advance.
