Hello....

...Perhaps you are copying a 14 GIG file (not actually applicable) ....more or less.... within/on the same hard drive. That will take some effort and time. What component is responsible for its speed in doing so.

My guess is the GHtz of the motherboard.

Hey...I had to find out from our wonderful group that the upload of attached files in e-mails was a function of your ISP.......

Somehow I do not think that I am getting any better.....ANY useful links would be greatly appreciated........



As always.....Thanks!!!!!

Since this sounds very much like a school type question. You also ask for links to support the answer so you can add them as resource when you answer this question.

I'll answer it this way. There are multiple factors that control the speed of file transfer. Processor speed is not the major factor. But I'll say this, one of the major factors that affects file transfer speed on a HDD is the quantity of HDD cache.

The rest you'll have to google. And you'll find a lot of information and some links you can honestly say you found on your own. :thumbsup:

...Quality of the HDD cache.......Haaaa..... :flowers: ....Stop confusing me......Pardon......


As suspected...Not a cut and dried nor simple answer.....

Thought along the lines of 20 pounds of dung through a 2" pipe issue (depending on texture :thumbsup:) ...Apparently not necessarily the case but perchance the research may dictate...as it will....

one of the major factors that affects file transfer speed on a HDD is the quantity of HDD cache.

No, not Quality.... Quantity for example: 2 MB cache vs 8 MB of cache...

You can transfer your 20 pounds of dung faster when you have 8 buckets to store and manage the overflow with. Instead of just two buckets to keep up with the backup of said dung. Texture of said dung is a factor but not a major factor as previously mentioned. It's still the Quantity of said cache managing the afore mentioned 20 pounds of dung. :thumbsup:

Veeeeery well put....And I thank you......


My "quality..vs...quantity" issue was strictly a typo...Pardon--- But your explanation clarifies it succinctly nevertheless

Thanks you for very much for containing the explanation to the base level.....some where I possibly can understand the concept(s)

Thanks a GIG!!!!!.....And that will be...perhaps already is.....deficient in certain circles
