- Moving large files
- Moving files to an external drive
- Out of memory error
Moving large files
Although Windows Vista is a major improvement over Windows XP, there is a problem when you move large files. In Windows XP, there were no problems moving big files. However, with Windows Vista if you move big files even on the same drive there is a long pause while it calculates how long it will take and the actual move takes a long time, whereas in Windows XP it is instantaneous. The problem occurs whenever you copy files in Windows Vista but it is compounded while moving or copying large files. The problem has been traced to the new auto-tuning network. A simple solution to overcome this problem is by switching off or disabling the auto-tuning network. Once you do this, the problem seems to go away and the file transfers are much faster. If you have any problems, then turn auto-tuning back on type the following in Command Prompt:
netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=normal
Moving Files to an External Drive
There have been instances of problems in moving or copying files to an external hard disk. This could be mostly a permission issue. It might be due to limited access to appropriate permissions to access these folders or files.
Out of Memory Error
The “Out of Memory” error is one of the biggest and most baffling of Windows Vista file handling problems. It generally occurs when a Windows Vista user (running Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6 or 7) tries to copy a large number of files.
