Windows 7 writes extremely slow to WHS (moved) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I started this thread in another forum and was asked to move it here... so to recap what went on over there:

    I used to have XP installed on the client machine which had no problems writing to the WHS.  Now that I have upgraded it to Windows 7 it writes EXTREMELY slowly to the WHS and if I try and move any large files it "times out". What gives?  And when I say slow, I mean like 50kpbs... something is way way wrong.

    •I've updated the NIC drivers (nforce 9)
    •Also Windows 7 was a fresh install on a new hard drive.
    •Was asked to copy a file from XP to WHS.  Did so and it worked fine.  I tried copying a file from Win7 to the XP machine and it worked fine as well.  But copying anything from Win7 to WHS is so slow it doesn't even look like its moving.  (in fact it errors out)

  • Same problem here. I got one pc who writes with no problems, and another with the same problems stated above... And the one with the problems has worked with no problems a few days ago.

  • That is exactly what I was going to suggest. I had Task Offloading enabled by default somehow when I installed Windows 7 on a PC, and it would spontaneously lose the connection (the WHS connector icon would turn gray). I'd have to reboot the PC to get it to connect again.

    I've actually disabled all the Offloading features in all of my PC NICs and my network is super stable now.
