I am trying to copy files from a windows 7 machine on the network to my local machine which is also a windows 7. Both the file systems are NTFS. I am able to copy files of size around 2 GB. But when I try to copy files of around 7-10 GB, file copy doesn't initiate on my local machine. Is there some size limitation on file copy over the network or Windows 7?
there is no limitation as far as I know .
This could be because of : - intentional network fragmentation on the network (so it limits the maximum transfer file , and keeping the network reservers) -package loss over the network .
To trouble shoot it you might want to use xcopy from cmd or Copy-Item (cp) from powershell , this will give you more details about what goes wrong.
