TeraCopy seems to make things go a little bit faster but mainly it doesn't have those ridiculous pauses between each file. Transfer speeds are like they were before I had 7. Thanks toreador.

The pausing could also be an anti-virus or anti-spyware software installed on your laptop as well checking out the files you are transferring. You did say the uni. installed Win7, correct?

It all depends on the difference in speeds between what type of internal HDD you are using vs the USB one.

If you have a Sata II or Sata III HDD with a high RPM and trying to put on a slower speed HDD on a USB connection, then there will be slow speeds involved, as for the pauses it could be burst copying doing so much MB/s as per RAM available or the machine is doing something else while your trying to do that.

Honestly I have no clue what speeds either drive runs at. But all my hardware is the exact same as it was when I was running XP. The only thing that changed is my OS.

Ya, there was an antivirus program too but I got rid of it and replaced it with Avast. Avast does scan every file that gets written, opened, or moved but it does it in the background and in the two years I've been using it it's never slowed anything down.

Windows 7 has the fastest transfer speed I believe.
