comment Have an all-in-one modem/router/wifi point; what do I need to add to extend wired/wifi network?
Hmmm, I don't want to fill my house with antennas, for aesthetic reasons! Also Ethernet connectivity is secondary to wifi upstairs, have editd question to make this clearer.

Additionally, ensure you're not embedding fonts in your document (Tools > Options > Save > untick "Embed Truetype fonts").

Thanks for this - please see edits to original question, as I'm getting near the maximum for large files, but time overhead per file is very significant.

comment What real-world transfer speeds should I expect for backups over my home network?
I take your point on deltas, but my backup software and all others I've seen backup the whole of each changed file, although I guess this might not be the case for more specialist/corporate software? So monolithic VM drives particularly will mean a lot of data to backup. However, as per edits to original question, it's the small files that are taking the time, and I'm not sure upping the speed of the network is going to make a significant difference.

comment How to rename the values on Y Axis in Excel?
2000/2003.. but all I meant by previous comment was that if you get it your axis custom number format method to work for more than two values, it would be far easier than using my suggestion :-)
