A bunch of cunts, mostly in the Australian sense. Except that one guy.

Vista is slow

I'm reloading one of the other machines in the house, and used my Vista machine as a temporary place to store the files.  To copy 56GB back to the freshly loaded machine, it's currently telling me it's going to take 2 days and 5 hours to complete.

Sheesh.

There's a hotfix out, but it doesn't apply to my machine.
:-(

on the bright side, its not just slow its also stupid....the 2 days and 5 hours is almost certainly entirely incorrect.

No anti-virus installed - just the Windows Defender, etc. that it came with.

Now the progress dialog is saying "About 6 days and 4 hours".  Must have hit a batch of small files.

On a 100MB/s full-duplex wired ethernet connection.

Well i would turn that off if you can - it is probably scanning every file.

Since when have time estimates in file transfers been accurate in any software?
