for some reason i cannot transfer large files (700MB to over 1GB) from a Windows Server 2008 R2 Essentials box to a Windows 7 Pro client.  It just doesn't work; it hangs.  When I try to upload to the server the file copies to 99% with 5 seconds left then hangs for a while then says the file transfer failed.


any ideas as to what could cause this.  just to mention, small files transfer fine ( up to 10MB or so).

Whats the network speed like IE(Switches and routers and the NIC on server && PC), sounds like a flood or a disconnect comamdn is beign sent befopre its finished.

I know Windows 7 when it first came out had really bad issues with copy files over a network, i can remember seeing 500 meg appear to take 3 years 4 months and 7 hours!


You checked the event veiwer? generally the first place to look.

How many simaltanious connections are allowed on the shared folder mate?

network speed is 100Mbs.  Simulatanous connections is in the thousands and we don't have nearly that many people.

It's not clear to me from your post...are you referring to a single client with this problem or are you indicating an inability to transfer across the network?  The above request for data applies only if you are talking about a single instance, a single client.
