What Windows utility makes the fastest work of copying large text files (80GB - the largest is 35GB)? Or perhaps there some function in VMWare that can copy files? Speed is the goal.

The environment is Cisco UCS with 10Gbps uplinks to the Netapp and the new storage with the VMDK. Multiple CPUs are associated with the VM doing the copying. So if there's a utility that makes a lot of use out of CPU - we have plenty to throw at it.

try robocopy, it should not take too longer, we move 10GB-25GB-45GB raw video files around in a few minutes around our LAN from NetApp LUNs to File Shares.
