Trying to understand how the network traffic works under windows for file moves. Under which scenarios below do the bits get routed through my local machine, and which does the file server(s) just move things locally w/out involving the network?
\\server_one\share_one\bigfile.dat --> \\server_one\share_one\subfolder\bigfile.dat \\server_one\share_one\bigfile.dat --> \\server_one\different_share\bigfile.dat \\server_one\share_one\bigfile.dat --> \\different_server\different_share\bigfile.dat
Assume I'm drag/dropping in two instances of windows explorer.
Do you need to know the OS's of the machines in question? If any of these route the file through my local, are there other tools that would allow me to bypass?
