Very slow Windows XP with slow internal file copy speed

Q: Very slow Windows XP with slow internal file copy speed

Few days ago, Suddenly My Windows XP started operating very slow. I uninstalled some program such as : AVG PC TUNEUP to reduce the load on the system. I also checked my Task Manager for pointing out memory eating processes but found none. My CPU Usage was dribbling around 0% to 3%. But PFUsage was near 788MB. Then I started searching for virus. Scanned with AVG, Avast, Zemana, Hitman PRO, Antimalwarebytes several times.
When they didn't solve the problem I gave a repair installation of my system to see what happens. It fixed the problem. But started again after some moment. I gave the repair installation once again and its running smoothly now.
I did some search over net and found out this problem can be connected to my harddrive. I scanned my Harddrive with HDDScan, Crystal Disk Info. They both showed error for
1. Current pending errors count [ Num 197 - vlaue 200 - worst 200 - RAW(hex) 0000000000-000E - Thershold 000 ]

Preferred Solution: Very slow Windows XP with slow internal file copy speed

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Whenever I try to do a completely normal (explorer) copy of large files between two ordinary internal disk partitions, explorer reports (and takes) 90% of infinity to do it! It starts out telling me it'll take 20 mins, then 40, then 60, then 240, and on and on. Obviously, I usually cancel them, since I don't have weeks or months to copy a single file!

We're talking about a 4 GB or so file or folder, so it really shouldn't be a big deal. I am NOT copying from a CD/DVD or to/from a network; these are ordinary files on ordinary disks.

I have gobs of memory available (1GB installed, very little in use at the time). My disks are quite fast (10,000 RPM SATAs). My CPU is quite fast (3.2 GHz, hyper-threaded Intel P4).

Problem occurs when copying between two locations on internal SSD as well as to external drives over USB 3.0.  Copy of large files (1GB or larger) maxes out at ~120MB/s (which is fine), but small files may transfer as slowly as 300kB/s.  I understand that smaller files take longer to transfer, but this seems excessive on an SSD even with only 4GB RAM.  Am I expecting too much, or does this seem strange to anyone else? I have run both Lenovo Solution Center's hardware scan as well as a third party scanner (CrystalDiskInfo), and LSC reports that the SSD does not pass the SMART scan, while the third party program reports all is well.  Windows Memory Diagnostic does not return any problems with the RAM.  I have tried a third party copy tool (TeraCopy), with similar results to the built-in Windows copy utility.  The computer has been scanned for viruses and spyware and appears to be clean.My computer is running Windows 10 with current patches.  I've run all available updates in Lenovo Companion.  Attached is a screenshot of a copy between an external drive and the internal SSD.  Similar results have been achieved when transferring between two locations on the internal SSD.  The full process of transferring ~6GB took about 12 minutes.  Is this normal when many of the files being transferred are smaller in size?

Hi! I have several computers connected to a file server using direct 4Gbit fibre (facilis 24tb Terrablock - 24 1TB drives in raid 5) connections, and using testing tools to test speed of the mounted volumes I get about 400 MB/sec, and using the utility to copy files given by Facilis, I can copy files from and to the served at about 400 MB/s, but when I use windows expoler, speed goes down to only 25MB/s and I'm observing this behavior in all the computers where Windows 7 is installed, one old computer running windows XP does not have the problem, MACs with OSX does not have the problem either.

Any clues why this can be?

A:Windows 7 slow copy speed

I'm curious what type of speeds that you are seeing with Windows XP and OS X? I don't see any possible way that you can be nearing speeds of 400MB/s...as these source machines wouldn't normally have hard drives capable of reading anywhere near that fast to supply the data to your SAN device.

When I copy the files from one driver to another(internal drivers), copying speed is between 13-17 mb/sec. I copied 30gb file and reached this speed. During this proccess, my laptop was really slow. When I open a new tab and trying to write something or view the web-site was kinda slow. Or openning a file took more than normal and It was annoying. I was a vista user and I don't know what they changed for Win 7 because I didn't use it. Now I'm a Win 8 user and find this weird. Vista was installed on my old laptop and if I run into these things, I'd say Ok but I guess I shouldn't face this problem with these specs. Do I have a problem or is this Win 8's nature?

A:Slow internal file transfer on Win 7 Pro RAID1 disk

Intel's onboard SATA's can perform a bit strangely, that's why I'm reluctant to use it and would prefer an dedicated RAID card instead. Nevertheless try some different bench-marking software and see if you get the same transfer rates.

Not sure if you would need to, but check segates website and see if they have anything about the drives (not given us the model otherwise I would have looked for myself) about being used in RAID configurations, or firmware updates.

I have data from an accounting program that I back up from 1 QNAP NAS to a Buffalo NAS every day. The files total 167MB.

If I use a Windows XP computer on the network (24 port Gigabit switch ) all computer have Gigabit, the copying will be finished in about 2 minutes.

If I use Windows XP mode on a Win 7 machine the same copy takes about the same time.

If I use Win 7, it will take about 2 - 3 mins to calculate the copy and then about 2 mins to do the copy.

Is there some way to make Win 7 behave the same way as Win XP and do the copying without the calculating.

If this topic has already been covered, can some kind soul please direct me to the correct thread.

I like Windows 7 in all respects, but it seems to be very slow in network file copying compared to XP or other previous versions of Windows.

Hello
I am running windows 7 on an asus pc.
I think I got a virus at one point when I was trying to upgrade my itunes.
I downloaded malware bytes and avg in addition to my norton security.
I ran scans for a while to try to make sure I got it cleaned up.
The computer seems to work ok right now except if I try to copy photos from my c drive to a thumb drive, it is unbelievably slow. It will give me estimates like 24 hours for a block of photos. It will take forever to copy just the first one, so I abort the operation. Went and did it on my wife's computer (identical pc with same os), it operated fine.
I'm not sure if I had a virus that left this legacy behind or if I have two antivirus programs that are fighting. I did remove malware bytes and I think I removed avg.
Is it possible a virus did something to my pc that will make copying and pasting files very slow?

A:very very slow file copy

Your problem is you have AVG running With Nortons. You can not have two anti virus programs running it will cause system instability and also to run very slow. The reason for this is because you have two anti virus programs running in real time reading the same files. Like two dogs fighting over the same piece if meat.

Pick Nortons or AVG and stick with only one. Uninstall the other and also use the AVG or Nortons removal tool.

Hey usama
I am not sure if this is the same prob I am experiencing... I recently tried to copy all of my home pics from my desktop to my new laptop. The older desktop is a dell inspirion 3000 (i think its a inspirion). any way I bought it in 04. Now I just got a new HP tx1120us laptop w/ Windows Vista installed.
I have since noticed 2 very aggrivating probs:
1. I tried to download the pictures I have to a CD then move them to the laptop. I know there a re other ways to do this - including Esy File transfer - but do not have the cable reqd - besides I figured that since it burned these files (@ 700mb worth -enought to fill a CDR) on my old desktop in @ 4 min - that it should really copy to my new laptop w/in @ 2 min due to the fact the laptop has increased memory / RAM (i think). Why then is it getting stuck and failing to copy these files it starts - gets about 3/4 of the way done and then just locks up - will do nothing more. I have tried multiple times with different CD's and even transfering diff info (in case one of the photos was corrupt- which I doubt since i took them all) . So again I am curious as to why this prob is happening.

2. Is the fact that since I have noticed this, I have also noticed that I have downloaded pics/ files to my docs folder (I am a professional photgrapher) and when I go back to view them - the folder that i placed them in is there - but the picture is not anymore.

Just over the last days all of a sudden my PC has started having issues copying files from my HDD to a USB drive, or from an external HDD to PC HDD etc. Also when it opens a HDD that has video files on it it takes along time to open, with the green bar over the top slowly moving across the top. If I start to open files it will then say "not responding" and needs to be left alone to come right again. Infact I tried to burn a data DVD of some video files from an external HDD to the burner and that also slowed so badly it only burnt 10% of the data in 30 mins. If I then try to close the files or burner etc it freezes and sometime I have to turn the power off to get it to reboot.
I have a 64 bit Win 7 OS, an i7 2600 CPU, 16 Gig RAM.
It hasn't been a problem before but now is.
Have ran virus scan and seems ok.
Other small files are ok, surfing the net is ok, other programs are ok. Just file transfers, burning etc.
Any tips would be great, its doing my head in.

Copy and paste operations over the network in Vista are terribly slow. The 'Calculating time remaining' blurb just seems to slow the entire process down and then I get transfer rates less than 2mb between machines on my network. Here are my relevant specs:

Belkin N1 Wireless Router set to A/G/N

Machine A: Vista Ultimate, P4 Duo Core, 2 GB Ram, Belkin N1 PCI desktop wireless card, 7200 RPM Sata HDD

Machine B: Vista Ultimate, AMD Athlon 3800+, 1 GB Ram, Marvell Yukon Gigabit Ethernet, 7200 RPM Sata HDD

The wireless Router has updated firmware supporting Vista, the N1 PCI desktop wireless card is still running on XP drivers but I get GREAT download speeds on the internet. Machine B has multiple HDD's and when I perform copy/paste from one drive to another, the transfer rate is very fast. I have read some tips that disabling 'Remote Differential Compression' has improved transfer speeds but that just increased my speed very slightly - hardly noticable at all. If not for the fact that I get great download speeds on the internet, I would assume that the XP driver on my N1 desktop card is at fault.

I setup Machine B as a FTP server and downloaded the same files that were so slow from Machine A and transfer rates are significantly faster than the copy/paste operation.

As more people get their hands on Vista, I'm sure someone smarter than I will find a cure to this annoying problem!

Hi

I've been trying to recover as much data from what I think is a failing HD, most of the data being images.

I've been using Windows Explorer (XP Home) to cut and paste file from the failing drive to the new drive, both on the same machine. The OS is already on the good HD. Both are SATA.

With the exception of dealing with a slew of bad files (failed cyclical redundancy check..or something like that), everthing was going well. BUt now the files are being transfer at a snails pace. They still transfer, but way too slow.

And when I check the system performance, no program seems to be running and I seem to have plenty of resources left. Once in awhile I get a spike on the CPU usage chart.

So do you think that this drive is beginning to go south or could it be something else?

I just did a clean XP Home install and don't have much loaded onto the new HD yet. Running Avast! virus and Spywareblaster...oh...and the XP SP2 upgrade with it's firewall. I have Auto Updates turned off as well as the help/services thing....(saw that here a bit ago)

Oh.....and I got a new Antec case/PS when I installed the new HD, just in case my old PS was dying as well.....whew!

Thanks in advance....

A:slow file transfers (copy/cut/move)

As it turns out, it appears that if I try to move, or copy, files from the damaged HD, the files are moved quickly untill a corrupted file is encountered. At that point, things slow to a crawl until I get the error message and can delete that file and start over again.

I've been having a lot of problems trying to get effective file transfers working between Windows 7 machines in my home network. I have a desktop machine running Win 7 64 bit, and a laptop running Win 7 64 bit also.

The laptop has a Realtek wireless NIC (120 Mbps). My desktop uses a Dlink DWA-552 NIC (300 Mbps).

The router is a Linksys WRT610N situated in the middle of the house, broadcasting both 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz signals.

The NIC and the router are both running the most recent firmware.

The main way I've been testing is by taking a 1 GB file, and placing it into the Documents folder on my desktop, and then using Homegroup on the laptop to try and grab the file, and put it onto the C: drive of the laptop.

All I've been able to get is 65 KB/s. This is with the same NIC and router that I was using on a pair of older WinXP machines just last fall. With those two machines, which were running on like 4 or 5 year old hardware, I was able to transfer that 1 GB file in about 8 and a half minutes. With Windows 7, that same file takes about 9 hours (according to Windows.....I've always killed my attempts after the first hour of waiting for the file to move).

I've been reading, and some people have posted online about McAfee being part of the problem....on Vista at least. So, I told a friend/business associate about my problems, and he commented he's having the same issues with Windows 7, which is a problem as he's a programmer, so often needs to deploy large files to clien...

A:Win 7 slow file transfer speed

There are no such issues with Windows 7, although certain A/V software, third party firewalls, third party networking programs, or uncompatible drivers all seem to cause these sorts of problems.

Most likely it's something you installed that is causing this problem. I have five Homegroup machines which are all different, some are ten years old and I have no such problems. Most likely you will need to uninstall which ever A/V is causing the problem completely to resolve the problem.

Hello all, I have a problem regarding slow speed when deleting files.

I have searched the forum and it says that emptying the recycle bin would solve the problem, but it didn't in my case.

I noticed that if I hold down shift to delete the files directly and not send them to recycle bin, the deletion speed is as fast as normal. Also, speed is normal when I check "do not move files to the recycle bin".

So I think it must be the moving part that's causing the problem.

However, my recycle bin is EMPTY! It seems that the computer thinks it's not empty and that's causing all the speed problems.

Does anyone have a solution to this? Thank you all very much.

I have noticed lately that my computer seems to take an excessively long time to boot up completely - almost 5 minutes. Also when clicking on desktop icons, they seem to also take much longer to load. Windows Explorer (the folder and file management tool, not to be confused with the browser Internet Explorer) is agonizingly slow to rename and open folders and files, sometimes taking close to 2 minutes just to open a 56 KB file. I have done all the usual things like running a virus and spyware scans (I have AdAware, Spybot, Malwarebytes and ATFCleaner, CCleaner as well as my ISP's Computer Associates Antivirus, Firewall and Spyware protection installed), emptying temp files and recycle bin and defraging the hard drive and I've unchecked "Automatically search for Network folders and printers". I also did a chkdsk scan and a system restore to before when the problem started. Nothing seems to help the slow response, especially when working with folders and files through Windows Explorer. I have not downloaded or installed any programs recently (only AdAware, Spybot and CA updates), but I did have a new power supply and a new cable modem installed recently. Even the tech that installed the new power supply said he was concerned at how long it took for my computer to boot up, however he only repairs hardware and could offer no suggestions as to what the problem is.

Hey guys/gals, newbie here.

Ok I am not the most computer literate guy, but I know alittle, definitely more than any of my friends though, thats why I have come here

So, I have been burning dvd's for some time now with no problems. I got a 500 gig ext hd and formatted it NTFS to store multiple 4+gb files. So file transfer back and forth to ext hd (F:) and internals (C:) and (D:) was going just fine. So was burning. Then...

I backed up all files on F: and I reformatted C: and D: because my rather old pc was bogging down. In the meantime I switched C: and D: from master to slave and reinstalled winxp on the now new C: drive. So my OS is now running on an 80 gig Hd instead of a 20 gig hd.

Since then any cut/copy/paste or drag/drop of these 4.6 gig .iso files from F: to C: or any combination of the drives, be it internal to internal, ext to int or int to ext, my PC Usage spikes to 100% and the time remaining says 45 or so minutes. That is not right, as you know. Before I could copy a 4 gig file from F: to C: (or D:) in about 10 minutes, maybe a little less and then burn the 4.6 gig image in about 10 minutes, maybe a little more or less. Now its 45 min to an hour just to get from F: to int HD. Plus the transistion isn't smooth, so the .iso file is all choppy and won't even burn properly. What I mean by not smooth is PC usage spikes to 100% then retracts to about 20% (only for split sec) then spikes back to 100%.

Just a few minutes ago took the ext HD to ... Read more

I just wanted to post this as an FYI. I thought users that read this forum may benefit. I won't include the gory details, the TCPDumps, SMB analysis, etc - but here's the synopsis.

Over VPN, WAN, or any link that increases latency between nodes above typical "LAN" speeds - CIFS/SMB file access for Windows systems can be typically slow.

This is a constant support question. "Why can I achieve 70Mbps when I copy the file locally, but across my [insert super fast connection across the planet] I'm only seeing 3-5Mbps"

Answer: TCP windowing, and SMB block size negotiation. Microsoft has published it's myriad of Windows releases to achieve decent performance across the lowest common denomination of users. Therefore tuning is required whenever latent connections are introduced.

Case study:
Customer with GigEthernet LAN and Layer3 metro switched access. Everything inside the Metro area was 1-3ms MTTR. File copies/general SMB access was great. Typically any one user could open a file upwards of 60-70MBps.
Customer introduced some national offices. Serial DS3's, and POS OC-3's were installed across Cisco 7200 and 3800 series routers.
Customer immediately started complaining about file access across WAN. Even if WAN was unutilized (less than 1Mbps of traffic), file copies would never exceed 5-6Mbps.
Solution: RTFM

File sharing is very slow but internet surf is verry good as usual.

Hi,

I am new to windows 7 and I am experiencing a small network problem. I can only transfer files with 1,3MB/s which is only like 20% of what 56Mbps should teoretically perform.

Here is my setup:
Computer A: Laptop - connected with wireless-n (144 Mbps according to network and sharing center) - win 7 prof 64-bit
Computer B: Desktop - coneected with wireless-b (56 Mbps according to network and sharing center) - win 7 prof 64-bit
Router: Linksys WRT160N V2

I am really disapointed that I can't even get 50 or 75% out of the teoretically speed

A:Slow wireless file transfer speed

There's a little confusion on what the terms mean.

First off, when Windows shows a connection at 144Mbps, it refers to 144 Mega *bits* per second. Notice the small "b": Mbps.

Data transfers however tend to be measured in Mega Bytes per second: MBps - See the big "B"?

Wireless speeds for 802.11g top out at a 54Mbps data rate. But actual throughput is about half that, 25Mbps at best. Convert that to MBps and you get something around 3MBps. This is on a good day, with the wind at you back on every other 2nd Tuesday in leap year.

If you share the wireless connection with other devices (Like another laptop), all bets are off. It can and will be considerably less. Also take into account interference from other wireless routers, other devices like cordless phones in the same band, microwave ovens, etc. and the number goes down even more.

In your case, the bottleneck is Computer B with it's 802.11g connection. Since you already have an 802.11n wireless router and 802.11n on the laptop it's worth it to swap the wireless card on the desktop or just wire it directly to the router if you can. Be advised though, in order to get full speeds on 80.211n the ethernet connection to the router must be Gigabit Ethernet.

oddly, if I bring up Steam and play Doom II (old Dosbox game) my transfer kicks up to 80 mb/s. Rocksmith only gets to 65 mb/s and Carmageddon Reincarnation gets to 75 mb/s.

If I exit the game entirely, the speed slows back down to 5 mb/s until I start up a game.

I imagine it's something to do with the games taking over the system but it is puzzling.

A friend with the same BroadBand service using the same email message w/same attachment can do it in 73 seconds. Is there something I'm missing in settings on my system?

Well it all depends on what you upload speed is, not your download speed. You likely have 256kpbs or maybe a little higher. That really limits your capability of sending a large attachment quickly.

My computer contracted wmupdate virus the other day and wiped my computer. I system restored and had to run a couple disk checks and eventually managed to get the majority of my files back in order (albeit as hidden folders, which i manually changed back).

However, a few of my programs now won't run properly; for instance when i try to open Google Sketchup it loads but then immediately exits the program. Also, Photoshop throws up a runtime error:
An unexpected and unrecoverable problem has occurred. Photoshop will now exit.

Runtime Error!

Program: C:\Pro...

This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.
Please contact the application's support team for more information.

I have uninstalled both programs and reinstalled and the errors still occur.

I figure the best thing to do would be to backup my files and reinstall Windows. I dont have enough room on my external hard drive for a complete backup, so i have been trying to copy files from it onto another external hard drive, but when i try to move my files over the copy speed slows down to around 50kb/sec and seemingly freezes.

So i have a dilemma. I can't copy my files, so i can't backup my computer in order to wipe it in order to try and fix it.

Being an architect it just so happens that the two programs i predominantly use are the ones that get shafted! Any advice that could be given to solve my problem would be greatly greatly appreciated.

Have you tried clearing out your internet cache?

What browser add-ons do you have installed/running?

You FieFox is out of date too, you say you have 3.0.1 - latest version is 3.0.10 (yeah I know 3.1Beta4 is out, but I discount Betas )

sorry, if this not the right place please move. I did many google searches cant seem to find the issue Im having, or maybe lack of the right key searches. You guys are my last hope.
I will try to explain my problem as clearly as I can. And so sorry about my bad grammar and spelling, trying to post this asap.

first off give small history of my PC. I bought my PC new Sept 2001. A HP Pavilion with 1.3 ghz, 256ram, and a 55gig hard-drive originally came with WinMe, since then I upgraded to XP. I kept my PC case clean, didn't try to install programs my PC couldn't handle, didn't go to any sites that knew were bad with viruses and such also had Malwareytes/spybot/avast/hijackthis to use, didnt install any toolbars, and tried not to have many programs open at the same time. I basically kept my PC simple with use.

Anyways around June I noticed some odd slowdowns
While playing Winamp and running a torrent with speeds of more than 400+ the audio would become choppy. This also happen when I would open FF, IE or any program while running Winamp, the audio would be choppy.

Extracting 700mb files from Winrar would take around 8mins

Playing Youtube, WMP, of VLC videos would be slow and choppy.

Transferring files from one PC to another over a crossover cable would take much longer. 4gigs of files would take about 20mins or so.

Virus scanners, Avast, Malwarebytes, and Spybot would also take much longer than usual.

So, about 2 weeks ago while my brother was on Youtube my... Read more

So, i've noticed some strange thing, and Windows 7 doesn't have this issue.

I'm using a Intel 520 SSD (the ssd has all OK SMART, almost empty, and no background programs running).

For example when i copy-paste a small folder on the SAME SSD but on different locations, let's say 50mb, (or some files 50-70-30mb) everytime i see the copy window appearing, says copying, etc.

And on Windows 7 on the same files copy-paste, that procedure was instant, no window appearing that says copying.

And even a 360kb file opens the copying window. I have a 3770k 4.5ghz, 8gb ram, 680gtx.

So it's related to Windows 8, due to no updates to improve performance ?

A:Slow Copy-Paste on Windows 8 (SSD using) Please help !

I've also noticed slow copy & pasting files in Win 8, both SSD & HDD. No solution yet.

Hi, in Windows 10, USB 3.0 ports doesn't work at full speed. I will show you two examples.

Write speed in Windows 10 [47MB/s]
Write speed in random live Linux distro [114MB/s]
It is the same USB 3.0 port and same removable HDD, the issue shows up all USB 3.0 devices like flash drives or removable HDDs.

Here is my hardware:

Recently moved house and had installed my internet today, the exact same setup.

Right now the only difference with this setup is that the router is plugged into my laptop, and if anything, it's closer to my computer than it was in the previous house.

My problem is that it randomly goes slow for short periods of time, or in games it lags like crazy. For example while watching youtube it'll shoot up the loading bar fast and then all of a sudden stop, and go really slowly, then back into fast speed over and over.

What can I do to resolve this?

A:Slow speed, fast speed, slow speed.

Go to speedtest.net and see what your download and upload speeds are. Watching a youtube video will use less bandwidth than a game would.

You could also do a tracert to google.com to see if there are any high response times.
