How to fix the slow file transfers problem in Windows Vista!

Post by dishant on Mon Jun 30, 2008 1:32 pm

You’d probably have noticed that file transfers from Windows XP to Vista are very slow. As most of you who still using their Windows Xp boxes, sometimes you would like to transfer few files to Vista and you would be mad at the slow transfer between.
This slowness can be attributed to a feature in Vista ” Remote Differential Compression” which measures the changes in files over a network to transfer them with minimal bandwidth rather than transferring an entire file that has previously been moved. This constant checking for file changes drastically reduce the transfer speeds. Here how to solve this issue!

  1. Press the Start button
  2. Then open the Control Panel
  3. Switch to Classic View
  4. Double click on Programs features applet.

  5. Now click on Turn Windows features on and off
  6. Scroll down and uncheck Remote Differential Compression


Now, check it out, file copy and move operations will be much faster.

hey guys pls post ur suggestions for this bcoz personally it worked good on my pc but not much improvement on one of my friend's system.

cheers!!
