comment Pacman doesn't download anything - Always 404
Can you open webpages in lynx or links? (I ask because pacman and links/lynx use HTTP, whereas SSH and ping do not.)

comment Does copying files in multiple dialogues slower than in one?
Another thing to consider is, are you copying a bunch of smaller files or a bunch of larger files. Copying smaller files is inherently slower on most operating systems than copying larger files. For example, if I copy 5GB worth of 20MB/each images, it will usually be much slower than copying a single 5GB movie. In my experience, parallel copying of large files is nearly as fast as doing two separate copy operations serially, whereas a bunch of smaller files being copied in parallel is MUCH slower.

@Ramhound My domain account is in the local Administrators group on each machine, so I have local admin rights.

comment Why does Microsoft Office installation allocate 1.5GB disk space even if I don't select any of its products?
@Kruug Beyond Microsoft being conservative, the other parts of the above-mentioned article states: "Office-wide Ribbon implementation. In Office 2010, you’ll see the Ribbon in all Office applications. " Some of the actual (and not over-estimated) bulk of Office 2010 comes from the shared components (which includes the suite-wide Ribbon elements).

comment Safe removal of USB mass storage device not possible
Have a look at DiskMon from SysInternals. It will capture all read and write events to all drives. That will let you know if anything is actually being read/written to the drive. I don't think it takes into account caching, but at least it will help you know if anything is being read/written from that drive immediately.
