When i had windows XP installed, i never had trouble tranfering from one network share to another... I would at least get roughtly 25MBs.. but with Vista (32 & 64) and Windows 7, transfering between network shares is super slow.. could takes days sometimes...

is this happening to other people??

I believe, this is also caused when I have to transfer files from my ipod. that it has to cache on my computer, and then transfer to the network share / computer, this is my theory, I never tested it ofc, maybe someone with more knowledge could help.

it's like unpacking a rar into a network share.

What's stopping you from copying the files from the source machine to the other share instead of making your 3rd computer the intermediary connection?

this is my setup:

server
-------
C:\> server (win 2003 server)
D:\Share1>
E:\Share2>

workstation (win XP, jumbo frames)
----------------
copy from share1 to local disk, get rougly 50+ MB/s
copy from share1 to share2, or share2 to share1, get roughly 20+MB/s


however, with vista, or windows 7 (jumbo frames)
-------------------------------
copy from share1 to share2, or share2 to share1, get roughly 1MB/s to 2MB/s
