When I copy a large file like 5GB+ from one server share to another server share using my desktop, why is it so much slower than if I login to the server and copy it to the very same place? I mean I get about 8MB/s copying the file using my desktop and 60-80 MB/s when logged into the server. Why is that? This is Windows 7 and servers are Server 2008 r2.
from desktop copy - My Computer - \servershare\file copy to another server \servershare\file - 8MB/s
logged into server directly - \servershare\file copy to another server \servershare\file - 60+ MB/s
