The file copying on local discs and network shares, and browsing shared folders is much slower on the Windows 7 than it was on Windows XP. I'm sure everyone encountered this problem, I personally have seen it on many different computers.

What would you recommend to speed up these operations?

I'm not sure if it works: blogs.technet.com/filecab/archive/2008/05/02/… –  tomp Mar 27 '10 at 17:42
    
That is extremely strange. Since this is a technet site, I guess they know what they are talking about. All I can say, is that I have seen several machines with consistently slow copying across network which have been resolved by disabling RDC. (Although, I have to be honest and admit, I didn't actually re-enable it to see if the program re-occurred) I wonder is it possible for some third-party app (eg Anti-virus) to use RDC if available and for this to be causing the programs. –  sgmoore Mar 27 '10 at 18:15
