Copying large files across a network Win7 > WinXP problems

Recommended Posts

I'm having great difficulty moving files across my home network, from my Windows 7 computer to my Windoes XP computer. The Windows 7 file copy box will spend a few seconds "discovering" the file, and then tell me the amount of seconds to go until the copying is completed. However, the progress hangs, locks up my network connection and I have to use the Windows Network Diagnostic tool to reset my LAN adapter.

I thought that it was my AVG Internet Security suite causing the problem, so I uninstalled it. Still get the same problem.

I thought that I might need to turn off Remote Differential Compression, so I did. Still get the same problem.

Curiously, it only happens when moving large files, say greater than 500 MB.

This is driving me up the wall. Can anyone advise?
