If I copy 2 large files in XP I find it takes much longer if I do so simultaneously rather than waiting for 1 file to finish then starting the other. I suppose this is because explorer goes back and forth between the 2 files copying small chunks of each at a time. Are the chunk sizes adjustable?

How does Vista handle this sort of simultaneous harddrive access?

I didnt think Vista would handle this any differently to other windows versions.

After all, its the hardware that will cause this to happen slowly.
