comment Is there an adapter that will allow me to plug my power source directly into my battery?
@bonGart Your criticisms are a bit harsh. I've already stated I don't want to open the laptop and I'm looking for a specific alternative to buying an external charger. I'm certainly not comparing it against the cost of a new laptop! I know that would be much more expensive. Sheesh! :P

comment Can Windows Explorer be configured to “move” a file from temp rather than “copy”?
Final note for myself: I tested "drag & drop" extract on my laptop (e.g. just a C:) and it was actually faster than drag & drop on my desktop. However, it was not as fast as "Extract Here" method mentioned in my first link; indicating to me that "drag & drop" on the same drive is not a "move" operation. I have a feeling my tests environments are not pure enough to make a sound deduction though. :P

Even though my folder and "temp" folder are on the same drive (D:) they are not on the OS Drive (C:) and maybe windows has to go through C: somehow to move the file? idk...I'll have to test it on another PC to find out if the same behavior happens on the same drive.

@ScottChamberlain and Daniel..both points make sense.My OP makes an assumption based off of 7Zips documentation and my personal experience using "Drag and Drop" for 7zip. The RAR file was 7GB but, uncompressed, it was almost 60GB. Watching it uncompress was expected but then watching it copy from folder to another on the same drive was aggravating; only because I know I can move a 60GB file on the same drive all day long w/o delays. It's very likely I may not understand the true problem.

I don't need to do any math. I can manually move a large file from one folder to another on the same hard drive and it happens instantly. IMHO, the SSD should have nothing to do with the problem because all action should be taking place on D:.

@ZacB Whatever the default drag/drop settings are in the 7zip GUI is what I'm using. In options, the "Working Folder" is the "System Temp Folder" which I have intentionally changed to %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Temp ...well, maybe that's the default now that I think about it....but I have changed my UserProfile folder to be on Drive D:

comment Can the “copying” step from 7zip be sped up?
@DavidSchwartz I can say I haven't intentionally set Reparse Points. After I installed Windows 7, I did change my Users folder from my SSD to my larger HDD. After the copy completed, just to see what would happen, I cut and pasted from the extraction folder back to D:\Users\Ray\AppData\Local\Temp and that happened instantly. Thus, I don't think it's an issue with folder properties; but it's definitely confusing.
