I'm running NT4.0 with SP6a. I recently changed from 40Gb hard drives to 120Gb hard drives. Since then, any file copying or moving slows the server down to almost zero. Using the system monitor, I see that usual processor time utilization is around 2% to 6%. Once I start copying files from one hard drive to another (both on server) the CPU time utilization shoots to 100%. Which makes it unavailable for other processes.

Any ideas?

Indexing service can slow down file transfering.Right click on the file you want to move and select properties then advanced,uncheck "For fast searching,allow Indexing Service to index this folder".

Let me know how this works for you
