I am trying to transfer a 6.5 GB file between two Windows Server 2003 machines on our network. Using
Robocopy //sourceserver1 //destinationserver2 filname /z is making the file transfer crawl and after three hours of initiating the request the file has only progressed to 26%. I am aware that the '/z' prompt slows down the transfer for Robocopy, but the lag here seems excessive.
I would like to diagnose what is going on in the network and try to figure out possible bottlenecks. Can somebody suggest where I should start with my quest or if I should have transferred the file in an alternative fashion?
