Performance is significantly reduced when you copy or write small files from a computer that is running Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008 into a shared folder that is hosted on a computer that is running Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008

From a computer that is running Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008, you copy or write some small files into a shared folder that is hosted on a computer that is running Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008. In this situation, the writing performance is significantly reduced.

You find that there is a performance reduction when you compare this writing performance to the performance of the following operations:

  • Copying or writing files from a computer that is running Windows Server 2003 into a shared folder that is hosted on a computer that is running Windows Server 2003.
  • Copying or writing files from a network file system (NFS) client to an NFS server.

Additionally, you may find that the Server Message Block (SMB) 2.0 protocol is being used to copy or write files.
