    Who would want their external drives to slow down? Me, that's
    who!

    Besides apps like BurstCopy that attempt to maximize data
    transfer speed, are there any apps that can set the speed,
    usually in Mbps, to any number you want?

    XP and eSATA drives are like oil and water. They don't mix!
    You can tweak the hell out of the system, it doesn't matter.
    XP was developed before these super fast drives. Vista fixed
    the problem by using dynamic virtual memory management.

    If you want to read about how XP uses static paged pool and
    paged table entries (PTEs) just Google the topic. Compare
    XP to Vista in this area and you'll begin to understand the
    problem.

    Please, no more tweaks or registry hacks. If there is an
    app that allows you to set the data transfer speed, direct
    me to the link or site.

    Thanks guys.
