I'm trying to move around 90Gb onto an external drive (1TB) and currently getting stupidly slow speeds! It's currently transferring at just over 1MB/s, whereas I would be expecting around 30MB/s. I know Vista used to have some issues with copy speeds, but I'm running an up to date version, and thought that the issues were fixed? Edit - Probably should add some extra information. It's a Dell XPS M1530 laptop, as far as I know, all the ports are USB 2 so that shouldn't be an issue. The laptop isn't doing anything else that appears to be stressing it at the moment.
