Am I correct in saying that all the native Windows copy functions (i.e. command line & GUI) carry out a copy from one folder to another folder on the same remote server by reading the data across the WAN and then writing it back. As such, the copy speed is defined by the WAN speed.
Are there any utilities that can be used to somehow cause the copy to be carried out on the remote server without going across the WAN?
I have a very dim memory of NCOPY in Netware doing something like this, i.e. the copy was carried out by the server.
Does anything similar exist for Windows?
