Copying or moving files around in Vista seems incredibly slow to me. Using the 'more options' while transfering a file it seems i'm getting around 20-25MB/s on average.

This is on a Raptor 74GB HD with all the Hotfixes installed. Is everyone else getting similar figures?

Thanks! Are the speeds i'm getting similar to what others are experiencing and how do they compare with file transfers on XP?

for me, Vista moves files much slower than in XP. but with the shell extension Teracopy, im getting speeds comparable to XP.
