Can't copy large files across network in one direction

Q: Can't copy large files across network in one direction

System 1- Notebook with Win 7 Home (64 bit).
System 2- Desktop with Win XP SP2
Network- Linksys WRT54GS firmware 7.50.2- Netbook is connected via wifi, Desktop is wired.

I use my desktop as a backup for my "work" notebook. I am using SyncToy 2.1 (x64) to Echo my files to the desktop, and I had noticed that the file global-messages-db.sqlite (15,299 KB) would not copy over successfully from my Thunderbird folder. It hasn't worked in weeks.

The error message said- "Error:Unknown error. The specified network name is no longer available. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070040)"

I thought that was strange, but was not worried enough to pursue a resolution.

Then tonight I was using Explorer to copy an 82 MB file over to the desktop and it looked like it was working, then when the status bar got about 5% of the way it stopped, and after about 2 minutes I got a message-

There is a problem accessing \\MADKIWI\Download
Make sure you are connected to the network and try again.

I tried copying a number of different sized files over- and most smaller files get through, larger ones don't seem to work.

I copied files FROM the desktop to my notebook, those copied just fine. Even very large (350 MB) files copied over apparently with no problems.

Any ideas?

Firewall, anti virus, IPv6, homegroup

You should be running workgroup given that you have win 7 and XP machines.

Well I've been browsing a lot of these threads, and I've come across topics similar to mine, but none have solved this problem. Basically, I am running Windows 7 64bit on an Intel core duo HP pc. I'm trying to copy RAR or ISO files larger than 4 gb's from a Maxtor external hard drive onto my pc's HDD. Everytime I get an error message saying that certain rar files are unrecognizable and gives me the option to either try again, skip file, or cancel. I had the same problem with Vista 64 bit. It has something to do with a 64 bit system because Vista 32 bit had no problem. I need to use a 64bit system for my 6g's of RAM to be utilized. Please help me out anyone. If you need more info let me know. Thanks.

Hi, I've installed Windows vista Ultimate edition on a packard bell PC for a friend.

I backed up all his files to DVDs to copy to vista, for some reason any file over about 800MB stops copying after around 3mins, it says cannot read from source file or disk.

His system has 1GB ram, only a small HD 80GB, and a celeron er 3Ghz.

The discs aren't scratched, and I've copied them onto my PC with vista just to check and they go on fine, I've removed his DVD drive and replaced with another and still the same error, I've tried doing it in safe mode same error, there is NO programs running on his computer, nothing is installed yet.

I can get the files onto his PC by using HJsplit, but would rather fix the problem.

Any ideas?

Hey Guys, I am Re-Installing XP on a Custom ASUS V770. The first re-installation went smooth, up until I try to copy and paste his data and programs back on, the computer freezes in mid copy (The hdd lite stops blinking), I reboot and do it again, it gets a lil further and then freezes again. (I am reinstalling his data from an XHDD). I thought it was his HDD so I installed a Brand new one.. Goes thru Re-install fine, Then POW, right when I copy and Paste his stuff back on, It freezes again, the HDD lite goes out!!! I did a RAM test, Passed. Do you think it could be A Hard Drive Controller, Or The Power Supply?, Or hopefully something simple I AM STUCK.. THANKS..

I have a 1.5tb usb3.0 drive that I cannot copy larger files to - I get a 0x0000045D - I/O Device error - whenever I try to copy larger sized files - 7GB files or more.  It works fine with smaller files.  I have tried copying with regular "copy", terracopy and robocopy methods.  I have removed the USB device, uninstalled the driver, rebooted and then hooked it back up - no go.  I have removed the device with deleting the driver, rebooted and that didn't fix it.  I have tried it on another USB 3.0 port, no go.  Tried it on a usb2.0, no go.

i got an oddball problem. i have googled and even searched this forum yet i cant come up with a solution. and microsofts site i think i need a degree in to find what i want.

so here goes.

i recently purchased a hp laptop with a vista sp 1 setup, with a 4965agn wireless adapter connected to a linksys wrvs4400n router.

now i get a n connection, the internet works fine, i set the vista box to my xp workgroup (all xp machines run sp3) i have unchcked the ipv6 and even turned the dual stack setting in the router not to assign ipv6 ips.

what happends is i can see the network randomly (list all the pc's on the workgroup) and i can browse 2 of the 3 pc on the lan.

but if i try to copy from 1 pc to another large files about 1 gig at a time, i get an error, and the lan drops. where the vista box will only show the vista pc and the router in networking. after a while the vista box will relist the pc on the lan.

i have set the network to private, network discovery is on, file sharing is on, printer sharing is on.

i have turned off both xp's and vista's firewall's and vista's uac both have no effect on this.

if any more info is needed let me know i can add to it, from reading posts nbtstats and ipconfig /all i'm going to add this in a few minutes as soon as i get the laptop booted up.

when this does occur tho, i never loose internet.

I'm having 3 massive problems on my pc that I can't figure out First of all the title is a bit misleading, as I actually have three issues and I'm unsure if they are related. The first one below at the moment is the most important. I believe possibly the 2nd and 3rd problems are the result of Klite Codec Pack http://www.free-codecs.com/download/K_Lite_Codec_Pack.htm and maybe a failing DVD Burner.1. Every time I attempt to transfer large files over my home network to this PC it locks up. The other 5 PCs on my network have 0 problems transferring large files.2. Intermittently my computer locks up when viewing streaming media on the internet (video or sound). It doesn't happen often but enough to make me think something is up.3. When I attempt to burn files to a DVD/CD the burn fails the verification check. (Used Nero, ImgBurner, and MagicISO) Previously burns have been no problem.Could these problems be related to some sort of malware infection?

I'm having a problem when transferring large files between my network, and not sure what the cause is.

I'm trying to transfer files from my wired desktop to my wireless laptop, and smaller files seem to transfer okay. Whenever I try to transfer a really large file, however, the internet and connectivity totally drops on my desktop (which is giving the file) and causes the laptop to lose the file. The desktop computer stays offline for about 1-2 minutes afterward before it either starts up again on its own or I reset the network adapter. I suppose it's important to note as well that the file transfer can fail at the very beginning, in the middle, or even at the very end, but my desktop computer always loses its connection whenever the interruption happens... but sometimes it can successfully get almost all the way through the file transfer.

http://forums.techguy.org/networking/768807-cannot-copy-___-specfied-network.html
I tried following some of the steps in this case to confirm that I can ping and do all that jazz to my laptop and all of the services are running, since our problems seem similar. I've disabled all firewalls as well. However, since one computer is actually wired to the router, I don't think the solution will be quite the same.

Anyway, looking for some help, and glad to provide any additional information that I can. Let me know what I can do.

Guys is there any way I can share large amount of files over the network?
I tried sharing the folder over the network but that gives a max speed of 2 MB/s. Is there anything I can do to get faster speeds?

A:Share large files over the local LAN network?

How are the computers connected to the network? Wired or wireless?

If wired, use good quality Cat5 or better cable. Ensure computers/routers have gigabit speed ports. How long is the cable run?

If wireless, what wifi standard are the adapters and router using, 802.11 N? How far are the computers from the router?

Are you sharing these files or just trying to copy them? If just copying, try a program like teracopy to see if it will provide better performance.

I have recently purchased at New Computer running W7 Home Premium. So As most people do I am transferring all my files from my XP home Edition SP2 System over a simple home network.

When I tried to move something more that's more than 1 gig over to the W7 machine.. the New system freezes up every time and then shows me the Blue Screen of Death and reboots itself. If I stay under that amount of data everything works fine.

Is this a common problem with Windows 7?? and is there a work around to this?

Hi, I would appreciate any suggestions on a problem I'm having. I have a USR access point/router (USR8022) and a desktop and a notebook, both with wireless cards, hooked up to it. The desktop has a D-Link 802.11b card and the notebook has a USR 22 Mbps (802.11b) card. I can access the shares/printers on each computer...I can even open really small text files. But If I try to open a slightly larger file (300 KB) it cranks for a while and gives me an error. If I plug either computer directly into the lan port on my router (through the ethernet card on the computer) and leave the other computer wireless, it works fine. It seems to be something weird about the 2 different wireless cards communicating or something. Any suggestions?
Thanks.

I posted this in the Business Applications, but someone there suggested I post it here since it seems to be more of a networking issue:

I've got a PC on my network running Windows XP Pro and Office XP. When attempting to save extremely large Excel files (one is 13MB and the other is 72MB - they're full of [email protected]$#@ charts) to a network folder, Excel locks up. Additionally, when the user opens these files, it's common for Excel to report it's repairing the file. Saving to the local hard drive works fine.

This mess seemed to start after we upgraded our NT4 file server to Windows Server 2003. The Windows Server 2003 was set up by a MSCE, which I am not. I'm self taught, and this is my first exposure to server operating systems beyond NT4. The server is configured to be a DNS and PDC, as well as Active Directory. It's the only Windows server we have.

In short, when I try copying large files ( > 1.0 GB) from my PC (wireless AC) to my NAS (ethernet), the connection drops sometimes (the sometimes is the irritating part.
- I have a Asus wireless AC adapter on this PC.
- It is more likely to happen if I am downloading other files (from the internet) while I am trying to copy this file (and this makes sense), however I would think it would just go slower (when I have more network traffic) - not just drop the connection.
I tried...
- Replaced every cable to Cat-6 within the past month.
- On my adapter I disabled the IPv6 (as I read that can cause connectivity problems).
- Updated the router's firmware. The router is an Asus RT-AC68u

I have a second PC with a wireless AC adapter and tried copying a large file to my NAS (ethernet), and the connection also dropped.
I don't know if this is a Windows 7 issue or if my router settings need to be adjusted to correct this. I did disable the IPv6, and I thought that would take care of it. If anyone can offer some suggestions, that would be appreciated.
Thank you.

This is my set up. I have my PC running Windows 7, connected through wireless to the internet and my home network via Apple Airport Extreme. I have a harddrive connected to the Airport Extreme acting as a network drive.

I can see the network drive, and I pull files of all sizes from it, but I have not been able to push large files to it. I can push smaller files to it with no issues (so far success with up to 706MB). I tried pushing a 1.4GB video file to it and it keeps giving me the error message: "There is a problem accessing A:\ Make sure you are connected to the network and try again"


I have an iMac hooked up to the network. I can push the same 1.4GB video file from my PC to the iMac over the wireless network. I just cannot push it onto the network harddrive. While I have no problems pushing large files onto the network harddrive from my iMac.


So in summary:
Pushing large files from PC to network harddrive - Failed
Pushing large files from PC to iMac - Success
Pushing large files from iMac to network harddrive - Success


I've tried most of the proposed solutions I found on the internet.
I've turned off the firewall - no change.

I've tried disabling autotuning - no change.

Hello,

I'm sharing a folder on a Windows XP computer with 15,000 sub-folders/files over a small network. This folder used to be hosted in Windows Server 2003 machine. But after I made the switch to XP, accessing the shared folder over the network takes over 1 minute for the files to list.

Does anyone know what might be causing this slow performance? And is it related to the XP operating system?

Are y ou using "homegroup" for networking? Sometimes on some mixed OS networks homegroup has a problem with connectivity and slow downs.

You can verify if it is the problem by making a new network connection using "workgroup" and see if the problem still exists. If it does not you can disable IPv6 and kill homegroup.

Hi,

Just installed a fresh copy of Windows 7 on the wife's HP laptop computer. Trying to copy files from my Dell XPS 720 to the HP Laptop. I have set all drives on both computers to be shared and can see all the drives when accessing "Network" on both computers but I can't copy from one to the other (says I don't have access).

I'm using backup software (and sometimes just Windows Explorer) to copy files over a home network (peer-to-peer). The network shares, mapped network drives, etc. are all working fine except for one peculiar problem. There is a small number of random files that won't copy. They are NOT in use; they ARE part of the share (some files in the same folder CAN be copied, while one or two cant'); they are not hidden, system, or read-only; they can be any type (.doc, .mp3, .txt, etc.); they are not in any particular date-range (occassional new ones appear); this occurs with either the backup software OR directly through Windows Explorer; but when I try to copy or open them I get an access denied message. There is no problem accessing these files from the local computer (the files are not corrupt) -- only over the network.

Running Windows XP Pro, SP2 on both computers on the network. I am using a NetGear RP614 4-port router/switch to connect the computers with Cat5e ethernet cables.

What is preventing these files from being opened or copied?

I suspect you are using Homegroup. Homegroup has conectivity problems on some networks (especially mixed OS networks).

You can easily verify if that is the problem be creating a new network connection using workgroup instead. If the problem disappears you can stop IPv6 and kill off the homegroup.

Is there a program out there that allows you to copy files off of a Microsoft Domain Network to your computer which would lock the files on the server so noone else can have the file and change it while you are in it?? Along with that, notifying the person trying to get access to the file, who has it open at that time??

Hello, I am using Windows 7 Premium and can no longer copy or move files to shares on a windows 2003 server. Also, I can not save documents to the mapped network shares either. This was working at one time, but has since stopped.
It stopped when the server was disconnected from the network switch. The user was trying to save a document to one of the mapped network shares and received message that this was impossible. Once the server reconnected, the Windows 7 workstation could connect to the mapped shares and open files but could not copy the saved file to the mapped network share. I receive the following error when trying to copy a file from my local drive. There is a problem accessing (path to local file) Please check your network connection etc..etc.. The workgroup is set correctly. and as I mentioned before everything worked until the day the server was disconnected. the user has the same authentication parameters on both the server and the work station.

I tried removing the user from the server permissions then adding them back.
I ran registry mechanic.
I tried a system restore from the day previous to the server loss.

What I can do.
1.Create a new file/folder on the same network shares in question.
2. If I create a new text file on the desktop I'm able to copy as expected...strange but true..I looked at the permissions on the newly created file and they are the same as all the other files I'm trying to copy.

I know you checked, but I can't help but feel this is a permissions issue.

What if you open a problem file and "save as" to the desktop?

Basic info: SBS 2008 (64bit), XP-sp3 (32bit) workstations, gigabit switch, SEP. App is Sage Masterbuilder.

Network config: Server is 1gb to switch over CAT6. All the workstations are 100mb over CAT5. SEP is set to exclude all pertinent files on both the server and workstations.

Problem: The program is called MasterBuilder and does job costing and much more. In the job costing feature there is an option to "Compute" job costing. In version 16.x, when the "Compute" was performed the task was done very quickly. After an upgrade to version 17.x it is very SLOW. According to tech support, our network is at fault since it is a database function over the network.

Troubleshooting done: Tech support blamed our network speed (100mb) and switch. We had a Netgear 100mb switch so we replaced it with a GB switch however the cabling will not support GB. Being a managed switch I set all the ports to 100mb except the server port. Even tried the server plugged into a 100mb port and no change. I am confident there are no speed issues on our network. All other programs perform flawlessly. ACAD, Exchange, data transfers and many other high data use programs work perfectly. I updated the network card drivers in the server as well. There are no performance or resource issues on the workstations. I monitored the network traffic at the workstations, server and switch with no issues and about 2.5% utilization during the slow "Compute" process. The switch shows no error... Read more

Hi
I'm having some weired problems ever since I installed SP1 on my Win7 x64 machine.
I get a BSOD(0x0000007F - UNEXPECTED_KERNEL_MODE_TRAP) every time I try to copy files from my desktop PC via direct wired network.
I tested my memory and HDD and everything is OK. This is not the first problem I have after installing SP1.
also had some "Audio Service not running" errors and a built in SHIFT + Right Click cmd option corruption, not to mention the extra 3-4 minutes SP1 added to boot time on both, my desktop PC and laptop.
This is happening once or twice and then I can copy files without a problem. If I restart the PC the problem reappears, once or twice and I again can copy files without a problem.
Here is a picture of the blue screen: http://img825.imageshack.us/img825/7187/image063p.jpg
Also, when I restart the PC after the blue screen, in Event Viewer I get the following errors:

When trying to copy files from my NAS drive to my local disk, exe, zip, and pdf (and other types) will not copy. I get a popup titled "Item Not Found" with content that says "Could not find this item". txt files (and others) will copy just fine.

Sounds like firewall or AV or permissions right? I've turned off the Windows Firewall and turned off Windows Security Essentials and still have the problem.

I can copy the files to a local USB memory stick, and then to my local disk, with no problem (except for having to go through the intermediate step of the memory stick). I can also _open_ some of the files (Reader for .pdf, WinExplorer for zip (and can even copy files from the zip to the local drive!) and run .exe?s). But some files won?t open either (like .docx or xlsx), showing similar error popups.

Some pdf files (and other types of files) on the NAS drive will copy OK. If I move WontCopy.pdf to the same dir as WillCopy.pdf (on the NAS), it still won't copy to my local disk. If I try to _copy_ WontCopy.pdf to the same dir as WillCopy.pdf (note: copy vs move), it will not copy to that NAS location but gives same error.

If I look at the properties of the two files (willcopy.pdf and wontcopy.pdf) they look virtually identical. Owner is "Everyone"

My Home Network (of 2 Windows XP Home PCs, SP2 and other critical updates applied) fails with "... access denied ..." because my Notebook PC incorrectly sends a network logon request for an administrative ID. XP is supposed to use only Guest logon for networking.

I have a peer-to-peer wireless network between my Dell Notebook and Dell Desktop It works fine. Used the Home Network Wizard to set up a Home Network. The computer names are, respectively, DI8600 and DELL4550. Workgroup TLSHOME. On DELL4550 bringing up My Network Places shows all the shared files and printers on both PCs, clicking on "show workgroup computers" results in icons of the 2 PCs, and clicking on the DI8600 icon shows its shares. On my Notebook clicking on "show workgroup computers" results in icons of the 2 PCs. However, clicking on the DELL4550 icon gives the "... access denied ..." message. Checking the DELL4550 security log shows that my Notebook has incorrectly requested a network logon for "(my user id)". Both machines properly request logons, as noted in the security logs, for Guest and Anonymous.

I probably contributed to this problem because when I first set up the Home Network the Guest user on my Notebook (DI8600) was inactive. The DELL4550 PC couldn't even "see" the DI8600 until I made the Guest user active. I have redefined the Home Network after activating the Guest user.

LAN is based on Dlink DIR-655 giga-switch and draft-N wireless router.
Both PCs have giga NICs.

I treat the desktop as "Home Base." When I travel, I copy (manual drag-and-drop) my personal data to the laptop across the network. If I make changes while on the road, I copy teh data back to the desktop.

I keep my personal data in lots of folders in the Public Folder on each PC.

No problems until now, I have much more data on the Desktop PC.
One folder is 66GB. Within that folder I have sub folders of 16GB and 28GB.

65GB folder will not copy to the Laptop. Copy message says "calculating" then disappears and nothing has been copied.

I cannot copy the 16GB folder to another folder on the same HD on the Desktop PC.

Why not? Is there an upper limit on size of folders/files that can be copied?

Thanks for all help.

Why not use an App to keep them synced all the time. Plenty of decent apps out there to do that. That way the application is only trying to copy files that have changed.

Could probably write a batch file to copy only files that have changes as well.

But if you insist on drag and drop then give TeraCopy a try.

I hope I can explain this properly.

In Windows 7 Professional x64, I have specified the size of icons appearing on my desktop (about half way between 'small' and 'medium'). This works very well and consistently.

However, when I move or copy a file to the desktop via right-click, or when I create a shortcut on the desktop via right-click, Windows creates a large size image of the file icon for me to drag and drop. Not only is the icon itself large, but it includes a substantial amount of space on all four sides of the icon. My file and folder icons in Windows Explorer are not even close to that size.

This causes a problem when I have several Windows open, because in that case I may be moving/copying/shortcut-ting to a relatively small area on my desktop, and the icon I am moving/copying/shortcut-ting doesn't fit into that small space because the icon, including the area around it, is so large. Consequently, Windows moves it to some other place on my desktop, where it finds enough space, and then I have to go looking for the icon.

This problem is particularly annoying when I have several files to move or copy, in which case Windows may scatter the moved/copied icons all over my desktop.

How can I reduce the size of the icon that appears for drag-and-drop, as well as the selected space around it?

I suggest you turn off the "align icons to grid" and "auto arrange icons" options, to give you complete 100% control over where you want your desktop icons to live. Windows will not interfere at all.

Right-click on desktop, move the mouse over View to get the flyout, and uncheck these two options.

Note that this won't solve your "large icons" issue when you perhaps would want them to be somewhat smaller. But it will give you 100% control over icon placement and will never see Windows move it somewhere you don't want it to go. Wherever you put it... that's where it will stay, unless YOU drag it somewhere else.

I have two computers (both XP professional) which each connect to the internet via a Dlink Router which is connected to a cable modem. One of the computer is hardwired into the router and one is wireless (however, hardwiring the wireless does not solve the problem, so that is probably irrelevant). This is my situation:

1) I can get on the internet with both computers.
2) The hardwired computer can see the shared files on the wireless computer, however, it cannot see its shared printer
3) The wireless computer (even if I hardwire it) cannot access the workgroup and cannot see the hardwired computer.

So basically, I can perform any file manipulations I'd like over the network with the hardwired computer, but the wireless computer can't access the network. Weird. Plus, the hardwired computer, although it can access the network, can never find the printer which is plugged via USB into the wireless computer.

Most recently, I have set both computers up with the XP home networking wizard with a "my computer connects to the internet via a gateway" option. However, I have tried other options, and none have worked.

Does anyone know what might be causing this problem? I would be grateful for any help.

Hi there
It's a "Roundabout" way but this should work and be quite fast.

If you have a decent backup program (NOT WINDOWS STANDARD BACKUP) that is capable of copying DATA as well as just "Imaging" a disk / partition then this method will work quickly and easily.

I'm using ACRONIS but any decent commercial backup program will work similarly.

1) Backup the data to a spare area on any disk. The file will be called something like xxxx.tib in the case of acronis.

2) Now Restore the data to your USB device.

Job done --easily and very quickly normally.

Whenever I try to do a completely normal (explorer) copy of large files between two ordinary internal disk partitions, explorer reports (and takes) 90% of infinity to do it! It starts out telling me it'll take 20 mins, then 40, then 60, then 240, and on and on. Obviously, I usually cancel them, since I don't have weeks or months to copy a single file!

We're talking about a 4 GB or so file or folder, so it really shouldn't be a big deal. I am NOT copying from a CD/DVD or to/from a network; these are ordinary files on ordinary disks.

Hey all,
I work at school that the network goes down 1 to two times a day. The 20 switches(cisco 2850) show that network has way to much traffic at all that time. All the ports are pretty much solid when this happens. It happens at random times thorughout the day we have about 1000 xp machines and 20 imacs. The only part that does not go down are the computers connected to the mdf which is a cisco 6506. Does anyone have any ideas on what could be overloading all the 2850 switches causing everyone not be able to get on the network or get to any of the servers.

Thanks

Ok guys I have plans to help make a new network for my family freind who is setting up a small hotel.
Basicly there are 4 floors. Each floor needs Wi-fi access, which needs to be connected from a single downstairs router.
Now how can we go about setting this up?
Obviously we need an access point on each floor, but we would also need access points to be connected to each access point on each floor. Now with WDS we could make the network look like this:

etc.
^
|
|
First floor access point (repeater)-->repeater
^
|
Router <-- Modem <--Internet

Would that work? Can you actually add a repeater to a repeater WIRELESSLEY? Or maybe each floor's main repeater will connect by wires to the main router downstairs....

Thank you for any help

Hi,

I have been trying to work the answer to my question out for ages. In our house, we have four computers. Our main computer is wired into our router with a wire, but everything else is wireless. Attached to my main computer is a 500gb external hard drive. I don't use it much, so most of the memory is still there.

Using windows, i have configured a workgroup. All of my computers are connected up to this. When my main computer is on, i can wirelessly print from my laptops. Any way, i have made a sharing folder that is on my external hard drive. I can access this from my other computers fine.

Now is the bit that i can not figure out. One of my computers is a netbook. It only has an 8gb hard drive though. Is what i would like to be able to do is when i make a file, for it to automatically make a copy in my sharing folder i have made. This way, i could open all of my files on my netbook without downloading them. I just can't work out how to make a copy of something automatically. If i just needed to start a piece of software at the end of the day, then that is fine. I just want to have files i create copied into my sharing folder. (Obviously i dont want to do each one by hand)

If i could have any help it would be appriciated.

I had an issue where my browse failed to communicate with the web after about 5 minutes, but Messenger continued to work and the network activity remined high. The windows firewall and security centre were being turned off.

It seems that these symptoms are quite common, and I followed a few threads, trying the fixes contained therein. Running various spyware, malware and virus checks, resetting the hosts file, turning off unwanted items in msconfig etc.

The situation now is that the security centre is stable, the browser is not cutting off, but the network activity remains high. I am afraid that my computer still contains some spyware/malware that has been undetected.
I've been online in this session for 20 minutes and the activity packets are: Sent 19,012 Received 32,507

Hello sevenforums,
Recently I discovered through looking in resource monitor that the processes in my (windows 7) PC were using on average 400kbps of my network. I have a 50g plan and was wondering how I could possibly be "exceeding the data limit", but I think this is the problem. The processes doing this are mainly multiple conhosts, dllhosts, msieexec, a ctfmon process, presentationhost and even notepad. (there may be more). The reason I know this is not supposed to happen is because years ago I had a 4g plan. I've also seen screenshots of people getting 1kbps. Could someone suggest why this is happening and possibly how to fix it? I'm not sure if this has been posted before, but due to my slow internet after "exceeding the data limit", it's difficult to search for it, so please provide a link if there is. My internet provider is Optus (sigh I know.)

On another note, when I scroll down, there are two svchost listening ports with adresses IPv4 unspecified and IP46 unspecified. I'm not sure what this means or if this is normal.

Thanks in advance for any advice given.

My question is, how can I manage or view how much bandwidth is coming from certain locations to see where the bottlenecks are coming from?

Aswell, is there anything I can do to "speed" things up? I will be getting a cable installer in to re-wire the office with gigabit ethernet, but that won't be until summer, possibly june.

I teach in an 11-18 year old, second level school. We are about to have a new school LAN installed (which is going to be part of a veery large WAN). There will be 120 workstations all printing to centralised printers (mono laser, colour laser, colour inkjet). My main worry at present is how to manage the printouts that will accumulate. As far as I can see, one way to solve the problem would be to have the Windows XP platform can pick up the user's ID and print it as a footer on every printout (both when using MS programs and ALL other programs). But, is this possible? If it is, does anyone know where I could obtain professional advice? If this solution is not possible, or you know of another way around the problem please post your suggestions. By the way I will not be able to carry out any technical alterations as the new LAN is going to be supplied under a Managed Service.

We have three PC's, one running XP Pro and the other two XP Home (all SP3). All have IE7 with Google toolbars, all have Acrobat Reader v.8. The two with XP Home can download a full PDF file of any size and read the whole thing in the browser without problems. The one with XP Pro won't do that - it downloads (say) the first 0.5 MB of the file and gets no further. IE7 displays the bit of the PDF it's got, but stops responding and has to be shut down from the Task Manager. Right clicking and "Save target as.." works fine. I've used the work round of disabling "View in Browser" in Adobe Reader, but the behaviour seems very odd indeed and baffles me! It's quite consistent on any PDF file greater than about 0.5MB.

Has anyone else encountered this and found a solution, other than disabling "browser view" as I have done?

How do I unzip a 214 MB cab file with FilZip? Whenever I try to extract it to either the same folder as all the other files from that particular application, or into a new folder or anywhere including the desktop, FilZip stops responding. Would that even be because the file is too big, or do I need to reinstall Filzip or find another Unzip app ?
 

A:Unzipping large files

It seems that FilZip once had problems handling large files (though the size was more like >1.5 Gb). I would try WinZip, or if you're using WinXP, then its own native compressed files handler. Given the size of the file, try not to do anything else on your PC while it unzips and it will take a while to do. Try leaving it for a while (10 minutes) if it shows up as Not Responding. Sometimes it resolves itself.

Greetings,

I need to stream large files between two computers (htpc & other is just for storing large files) that are separated by a wall. Both are connected to powerline network adapters and a third computer has a powerline adapter hooked up to a wireless router, all are connected via windows 7 network (all are running windows 7.

Since both network plugs are used I was thinking about using a usb network cable to stream bluray movies from the one that is stored to the other. Wireless/powerline still cause stuttering, doesn't seem to be a fast enough connection.

Is this a good idea? Is there a better solution?

Thanks, marrjam

A:How to stream large files

1. Powerline devices are not fast enough to stream.
2. Unless you use Wireless "n" it will not be fast enough to stream. I have tried 54mb wireless...it does not work well.

Direct wire at 1GB is perfect works very very well. 100mb connections work well, but hi-end BluRay, you will need more bandwidth.

Welcome windows especially 64 bit can handle huge amounts file/folder/ the slowdown may be either it is using up your memory or maybe the hard drive cant keep up. You could either use Acronis or ghost to back them up to one space. Or failing that try doing it in small chunks.;

Hi bonkboy,

Welcome to TSG!

The easiest thing to do is write a script.

Let's assume that writing scripts is new or that you do not know how to write one.

Here is an example of a script (Note - since I don't know what OS you are running, this script may not work on your particular OS or any OS due to errors in the script, but it will give you an idea of how to do what you want as a first cut):

#! /bin/sh
# name of script is: copyscript.sh
todir=$1
fromdir=$2
filelist=`ls -1 $1 $fromdir`
for i in $filelist
cp $i $todir
end
exit

Note: $1 and $2 are the first and second parameters passed into the script from the command line.

You would first need to make the script executable:
$ chmod +x copyscript.sh

Then you would need to invoke the script, as follows:
$ ./copyscript.sh <todir> <fromdir>
where you would replace todir without the brackets (<>) with the full pathname to the folder aka directory where the USB HD is mounted, and, similarly, replace fromdir without the brackets (<>) with the full pathname to the folder aka directory where the files to be copied are currently located.

You can start here to learn about Shell Scripting and go from there according to your system (Windows, Mac, Linux/Unix).

Hi. For a while I've had trouble downloading large files from the internet where the download would, after a while of running smoothly, drop speed rapidly and then stay at 0.00KB/s. I could fix this by pausing and unpausing the download which would make it start from where it left off.
I am currently trying to download the game Guild Wars 2, I have the launcher on my pc but the problem occurs when I launch it and it tries to update/install. The download just stops at around 3% after downloading at about 1.1MB/s and I have no way of doing my usual fix.
I have tried running the launcher as administrator, deactivating my firewalls and re-trying the launcher about 20 times now but nothing works.
I am fairly certain it is not my router as this same download problem does not occur on my dad's pc.
I am connected to the router via ethernet cable.

I have an Acer G3610 with Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 and WebrootSecureAnywhere anti-virus.

for some reason i cannot transfer large files (700MB to over 1GB) from a Windows Server 2008 R2 Essentials box to a Windows 7 Pro client.  It just doesn't work; it hangs.  When I try to upload to the server the file copies to 99% with 5 seconds left then hangs for a while then says the file transfer failed.
 
any ideas as to what could cause this.  just to mention, small files transfer fine ( up to 10MB or so).

A:cannot transfer large files

Whats the network speed like IE(Switches and routers and the NIC on server && PC), sounds like a flood or a disconnect comamdn is beign sent befopre its finished.
I know Windows 7 when it first came out had really bad issues with copy files over a network, i can remember seeing 500 meg appear to take 3 years 4 months and 7 hours!

I know there is a way to send large files, but I'm drawing a blank. I tried winzip, but I'm not having any luck. Please advise....I thought there were services that did this, but I can't find them.
 

A:E-mailing Large Files .. please help

Define large.

Some e-mail client software allows you break-up large files and then attaches the pieces to individual e-mails messages. The recipients then need their e-mail software to put the pieces back together.

You can also use a service like www.yousendit.com. You upload the file to their server and then you send people a link to download the file.

_________________________________________________________

i first noticed the problem when i began installing half life 2, i recieved the 1335 error, something about a .cab file (a very large file when i looked on disk)

then i noticed it again when installing an EA game called ultima online Samurai Empire, where i recieved an error randomly, sometimes it was the art.mul or the art2.mul or the sound file

ive noticed by emptying my temp file (run>temp> delete all its content) will allow an install to proceed further then if i didnt remove the temp files
however it still cannot complete an install

however things like my motherboard drivers, and other files that arent very large can be read, written and installed very easily

ive ran the maxtor software that checks for hardrive errors and i passed every test

i have no software to test the cd drive

this is my first build and id realy like to begin playing half life 2 death match (and i need to install ms office so i can work on school projects)

im running windows xp pro with sp2

any help on this would be grand, thanks in advance
 

A:troubles with large files

I would guess the CD drive is not reading correctly from the disk. I've had simalar problems. Just certain programs would not load completely. Invested a few bucks in a decent DVD/CD-rom and the problem went away. You may have other problems. Someone else may have some input. (BTW, I believe an Athlon XP 2600 runs at 1.917ghz, not the 1.25 as mentioned in your post)
