Preferred Solution: windows 8 to server file transfer

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.)

A: windows 8 to server file transfer

Have you tried initializing the transfer from the "whs" instead of from Windows 8 to the WHS? Try that, go into the WHS and try to move it from Windows 8 to there, from within the WHS.

The only thing I can think of, is that at the very end of that transfer, it may be pulling up a Permission dialogue on the WHS which you can't see on Windows 8. Because it is possibly moving the transferred file from a Temp folder on the WHS to the folder you chose as the destination.

You may also try checking the permissions of that file, and give Administrators full permission to handle it.

Hi guys,

Here is the deal! I have Windows Home Server on one computer and Windows 7 Pro 64-bit on other. If I try to transfer file from WHS to WIN7, to transfer wont start. It hangs on "calculating". Sometimes is starts, but crashes pretty fast.

If I upload from WIN7 to WHS, it works. If I download from Ubuntu (samba) to WIN7 it works. Everything works, BUT transfer from WHS to WIN7. I also cant stream video or music, it just wont work.

My WIN7 has motherboard Asus P5K with Atheros L1 gigabit NIC. Router is D-link DWL-4300 with newest firmware.

Any good ideas what to try. Problem definately seems to be between WHS and WIN7. since everything else seems to work. I'm really open for good ideas here guys

Ok, so here is a little info about the network setup.
Linksys E3200 Router
3 - Windows 7 Machines (Enterprise & Ultimate) , Tried wire and wireless
1 - Windows 8 64-bit machine
2 New Macbooks (Air and Pro)
1 Mac Mini server (2011 model) - 3TB external HD formatted in OS Journal (default mac) with samba sharing enabled

So here is the issue...
The macbook's we have connect and transfer large amounts of files just fine to the mac mini. No issues at all, even on wireless. The issue is when trying to transfer files from the Windows machines to the mac mini. You select just one 150mb file to copy over, and it might fail at 30mb or 120mb transferring giving an error like file or path is not available. However you can hit retry a few times and it might continue or restart, sometimes you have to cancel and copy the file over again. It acts like it loses the path, but you can instantly navigate to the server again instantly like there was never an issue. If you select a bunch files to transfer, lets just say like 2000 files, and its a total of 4gb. You will have to hope the retry works when the error happens or click skip and redo the file after. Nothing stands out that is causing this, but it is either an issue with the Mac & Samba transfer, router setting, or a Windows setting / registry issue causing it.

Dear All,
I have a problem where i am having 2 application server clustered and both using a common file folder (residing on one app server and access by other through mapping network drive). This common shared folder is storing some files used in application. Now my problem is that because of sharing folder this way, my application starts running slowly and performance is hampered. It application actually stop running as file is not getting opened. If i remove the clustering and just work with one app server (ofcourse file folder residing on the same server) it works fine. Can somebody tell me what can be the problem if i access the files through mapped network drive. I am using windows server 2K with 2 GB RAM.

Appreciate the help on this.

I'm wondering about the quickest way of transferring a large amount of data from a remote server to a local one, over a high-bandwidth connection, and ideally with some encryption. Both machines are Linux systems.

My first shot would be to just use scp, which of course works, but it seems every scp transfer is capped to around 800 kB/s. This is nowhere near the bandwidth limit, as I can just open up additional terminals and start new separate scp transfers, each one of which will then run at around 800 kB/s. On a previous occasion I tried pushing this, and had around 80 terminals open at the same time for a total transfer rate of around 400 MB/s. They slowed a little per process, but it still didn't seem saturated.

Anyway, while that may work, it's a bit of a nuisance to manage. I'd like a way to either get rid of the bottleneck in each scp thread, or an automated handling of multiple scp threads for arbitrary transfers. The latter meaning that I don't want to have to write a new script every time I do this...

Naturally, it doesn't have to be scp. I've looked into rsync, but running it over ssh I get the same speeds, and that of course sort of indicates it's not an scp issue but more likely something with the encryption of ssh. In this context I found this:

http://www.psc.edu/networking/projects/hpn-ssh/

...which should do what I want, but even installing this, produces around the same speed per process.

Hi,

I have a requirement for an Https file transfer mechanism and am currently looking for software to do this function. I want the software to be ideally meet the following requirements:

- free/open source
- run as a service on either windows or linux (preferrably the latter)
- allow people to send files to a other people
- must be secure and use https through a standard web browser
- be very simple for clients to use (somebody should be able to pretty much go to the web page, select the recipient, choose a file and click upload)

We have an in house written web application that does this, and although it seems quite nice it does have it's problems, so I'm looking for something standard on the internet to replace it.

The current mechanism accepts the file, and then emails the recipient with the https link to download it.

Surely somebody must have had this requirement before for simple quick document exchanges from outside the company to inside or vice versa that don't use fully blown sftp servers or the like which requires both sides IT departments getting involved to set up both ends.

Does anyone have any recommendations for server softare on either windows or linux which can do this?

Hello,

I have a problem to access file server on Windows Server 2000 from a Windows 7 PC. For your information, due to some reasons, both Windows 7 and Windows Server 2000 are in different domain.

I have tried all suggested solutions which are :
i. to unchecked both attributes in 'Network Security : Minimum session security for NTLM SSP based (including secure RPC)' for both clients and server.
ii. to apply 'Send LM & NTLM - use NTLMv2 session security if negotiated' in 'Network Security : LAN Manager authentication level'
iii. to make sure the time setting for both Windows 7 and Windows Server 2000 are the same.

But still, i couldn't access the file server. In fact, each time I entered domain\username to authenticate, it will give out this message :



Since I am kinda new to this troubleshooting things, it would be great if someone can tell me why does this happening. Is it because of the different domain?

thanks in advance.

A:Windows 7 unable to Access file server on Windows Server 2000

To connect to the server you would need to enter the credentials of the domain user on the server that would have access. For example if the domain was 'home' with a user 'Josh' then I would put:

home\Josh

As the username. If you want to get advanced you could try and form a trust with the other domain in active directory so that the other domain has permission to access the server

For example, the old computer is the "master" comp in my wireless network and I recall that I had a heckuva time getting it set up, it took multiple calls to D-Link etc. to finally get it right....would the network setup as it exists be transferred or would I have to go through the total "new install" using the setup CD's etc.??

Sorry to say this but looking at this site, Windows Easy Transfer - Windows 7 features - Microsoft Windows
you needed to install the Win 7 compatible program on your older PC running XP and not use the XP files and settings transfer software. That was for moving files and seting TO XP from a similar or older OS.

A simple google search, before you jump, of tranfer files and setting from XP to Win7 would of brought up a slew of hits on how to do it.

So it seems you will need to get that old PC working again to some degree to be able tok either replace your files on it or get them off it into Win 7.

Hi RoloDman,

The maximum file size for FAT32 is 4GB so that isn't an option.

7zip has the functionality to split files every X MB/GB. Install 7z, right click on your file, add to archive..., then on this menu, specify 7z to split the archive every 3GB or so. Transfer each piece via a flash drive, then to extract it, just right click the FIRST part and use 7z to extract it.

Alternatively, you could transfer it using a NTFS formatted external hard drive. Or even over your local network

I recently installed windows 7, and now Im experiencing this problem: When I try to download a file from my PC (W7) to my notebook (MacOSX) (exploring from the notebook), the network connection stops working. I loose any contact with the outer world, but the connection is still active. The transfer stops, no internet navigation, no ping, no access to the router, nothing. I shows a little exclamation point in the network icon, telling me the internet is no longer availible. The diagnostic option donīt find anything wrong. To bring internet back, I have to deactivate the adapter and then activate it again. The same thing doesnīt happend when I send a file from the PC to the notebook. the transfers goes ok. Im using W7 RC 7100, my network device is a Atheros L1 Gigabit Ethernet onboard. The PS is wired on a DI-524 (wireless router) and the Mac access it by the wireless network. Is there any way to correct this, os is still an unsolved bug?

I am changing domains on a Windows 8.1 machine and Windows File Transfer only allows you to import a file not create one. I don't want to add programs to the server or the Windows 8 if I can avoid it. Any suggestions?

Can you be a bit more explicit. What exactly are you trying to do? Why do you need to copy anything anywhere?

The more info you provide the better chance someone will be able to help.

I am copying over my pst file into an exchange database, I have been able to transfer over all files except two. These two files come up with pst errors. I run scanpst software and the files transfer, however only a few emails transfer and none of the folders I've created. How do I fix this or get it to transfer everything?

I decided to transfer my internet favorites from my desktop PC to my laptop. They are both on my home network, both talk to each other and both, along with my wife's share internet. Everything works OK. BUT when I went into the windows transfer system (on the desktop PC) and ticked the "both computers on a network" option it told me it couldn't find the other computer or network. Why? They obviously were connected because I worked around by the rather crude method of copying the "Favorites" folder out of the Windows folder on the big PC and stamping it onto the laptop via the network. (I first copied on the big one from Windows to "My documents on D: because that is the folder which is authorised to be accessed). I couldn't use the Floppy option as I did a few years ago when going from my old 98 to XP because of course the laptop doesn't have a floppy drive.

Configuration: 2 same PC's with ASUSP8H61 motherboard and 4MB PC a-32bit Win7, PC b-64bit Win7 connected with a switch and static IP.

IPconfig/all on both PC's the same.

Problem:
Transferring files from a to b is no problem, using the a-explorer
retrieving files from a to b is very slow (10 minutes for 6MB) using the b-explorer

for example when I open the image viewer on PC a and retrieve a file from pc b the image will show up directly
when I open the image viewer on PC b and retrieve a file from PC a it takes a very long time (up to 10 minutes) to show up on the screen.

Who has a suggestion?
Thanks

Hi,

I'm having some problems with the Windows 'Files and Settings Transfer Wizard'. Although I'm not sure if the problem is networking related.

I have just built myself a new computer using XP and I am trying to transfer some files and settings from my laptop. I have setup a network from my desktop to the laptop (thats how I'm connected to the net, desktop internet through the laptop) and opened the transfer wizard on the laptop through the start menu. I have gone through the process answering the question that the computers are linked through a home network but I then just get the message,

"The wizard cannot locate your new computer. Make sure the new computer is turned on and that your network is working properly."

But this doesnt make sense as I'm using the desktop to type this question on the internet which is connected through the laptops connection, and so the network must be working properly? I'm baffled.

I know you can use a serial cable as an alternative but my laptop doesnt have a serial port so I have no choice but to use an ethernet cable.

Any help is greatly appriciated.

Thanks
Skin.

Sorry if this is in the wrong forum, not sure if the problem is with the wizard or the network.

I have an XP computer which I store all my media files (movies/tvshows/music etc... )
this is all it does
I have shares setup on the computer ( movies / tvshows / music )

I use my Windows 7 computer to do my downloading from and I am having problems with transferring files from my
Windows 7 box to the XP box.
I mapped drives on the Win 7 box to the XP shares

when I transfer any file, to the mapped drive (share) it often fails saying error with connection etc..
what is weird is that if I zip that file, and extract it from the zip to the mapped drive, it works like a charm

is there any reason why the regular file transfer fails, but extracting from zip/rar works ?

anyone come across this before ?

I have a home network with two xp computers and a win98 system. I am trying to copy photos from the xp system over to either xp system.

When I use windows explorer to drag and drop files from the 98 system over to either of the xp systems, file transfers begin but after a while, they stop. When transfers stop, windows explorer is hung. Task manager cannot close the hung windows explorer, but internet explorer will still run. Only pressing reset will clear the windows explorer problem.

I've had no problems in the past with transfer of many gigabytes of files between xp machines.

My problem seems related to connecting to the win98 system on my home network.

I've looked on the Microsoft knowlegebase without resolution.

One system has SP2 and all the updates installed. The other system is a but further behind.
 

A:Windows explorer hangs, file transfer on lan

On the 98 machine, boot into DOS and at the C:\ prompt type scandisk /autofix and let it run. After it is done, boot into safe mode and do a defrag of the hard drive. Boot into regular windows and try the transfer again.

Lance.

I just a Bluetooth adapter, my 1st PC that has Bluetooth, and i was just wondering how do you send files from my phone to the PC.

The only way i can get it to work is if i right click on the Bluetooth logo at the bottom and click receive file. In my opinion it takes forever to send more than 1 file by doing that all the time. Is there another way... If i don't click revive file my phone can not find the PC.

I have a Sony Ericsson C903

A:How to transfer from Bluetooth file from phone to Windows 7

I am sorry if I do not appear to address your question per se, but personally I find that simply connecting your phone to your PC by a USB cable (usually provided by the phone manufacturer; definitely came with my Sony Ericsson) is way simpler and faster than setting up Bluetooth.

I am looking for a file transfer utility to transfer files from a 486 laptop with a DOS environment and serial and parallel ports to a Pentium IV laptop with a Windows XP (Home Edition) environment with parallel and USB ports. Both machines have floppy disk drives, but the floppy drive in the 486 does not reliably copy files to a floppy disk. The 486 also has Windows 3.1, but I've never used it much.

I used to use the DOS version of Norton Commander to copy files from one machine to another machine, but this requires serial ports on both machines. I may be wrong about this, but I'm thinking it might be possible with a connection via parallel ports and file transfer software that will work under the C:\ prompt on both machines.

Can anyone advise me about the feasibility of getting files transferred from the 486 to the Pentium IV and to suggest some mechanism (preferably software) for doing it?
