Because of traffic reasons I am not able to transfer big files inside my network, unfortunatelly, I need to do such thing everyday.

I usually transfer these files by coping and pasting from my computer to another network drive(\targetIP\targetpath), just like this:

TIs there any tool, Windows configuration or some technique to limit file speed transfer to 10Mb/s?

PS: I don't want to use FTP or another protocol.


Use Robocopy with /IPG switch.

  • Didn't work for me. Tried W7 and 2012 editions both used 100% bandwidth. The best I could do was use a value of 10000 and all I got were spikes at intervals. – Dude named Ben Oct 12 '18 at 2:47

Use Robocopy with a /IPG switch to limit bandwidth. Robocopy comes standard on Windows 7 and Windows 2008 Server


this link includes formula for figuring out maximum speed.


Tried Robocopy but didnt work for me, both W7 and 2012 versions. Used UltraCopier and it worked beautifully, and I could raise and drop the usage as needed while the copy was in progress...
