I've mounted a net drive into my local computer and there are several large compressed files (e.g., ~100Gb) stored in this net drive. If I decompress the file using WinRAR, it seems the decompressing speed is very slow and I can also hear the busy sound for reading/writing my local disk. Then I doubt that if there are some huge data transfer from the remote server to my local computer. What's the detail in this procedure? Would the files in the large compressed file be first copied into my local disk, then copied back to the net drive in the remote server?

If you use the
Extract...option and select the destination though the WinRAR GUI, it will extract the files to the temporary directory and then move them afterwards.
If you select the files you want to extract in the WinRAR window, Right click on them, choose
Extract to Specified Folderit will extract without using the temp folder and copying.
You can also set the temp location using "Options" > "Settings" > tab "Paths".
