Vista and Remote Differential Compression

We ran into a major problem when we were running our first Vista based laptop. The file copy times over the network were horrendous. Slow just barely describes the copy speed. A guy with a quill pen, parchment and an ink bottle could have copied the files faster.

Some research pointed to people having luck with disabling Remote Differential Compression. You go into the program uninstall and then the windows components. Simply uncheck the box and reboot.

The copy speeds were now where they were supposed to be. I only did a cursory check but it appears that we aren’t losing anything important by disabling RDC.
