Common problems are that files are missing, data is missing from file table, long name reads or erroneous/inconsistent file naming, bad HDD, etc.

Do you know if the data you're moving isn't corrupted?

EDIT: I should also point out that I have had issues with large file transfers with Google Chrome open in the background. Not sure why, but once it was closed (Chrome) the issue went away.

How many hard drives are in this system? What is the OS drive? What drive are the files on? Where is your pagefile located? How much RAM do you have? how big of a file are we talking about?

Files over 1GB are going to take a while to move, regardless of how fast your system is - unless you're running a really fast RAID setup. Perhaps not slow on an SSD, but from a mechanical HDD to another, it'll be quite slow.

It may start out at 100MB+ but will eventually top out to a much lower speed.

Check out the explorer.exe every so often and try deleting it then manually restarting it every so often(especially if it is using 30k+ memory).

Dude, make like your name imply and chill the heck out. This is only a 3 hour old post, everyone who has posted has tried to help, and honestly it's a very obvious and somewhat stupid issue.

We're all giving you the benefit of the doubt, and assuming you aren't 100% ignorant of how disk operations work, and as such we are trying to gather some more specific information to see if there actually is an issue here. You failed to supply that specific information, so I don't really know what you're freaking out about (your sig rig does NOT match what you said in your follow up post nor did you specify that this is taking place in your sig rig).

Please realize we are human beings, helping you out, for free, on our own time. We are not your personal slave army of mind reading technical-support technicians. Give us some time to reply, and the info we need to work with, and drop the attitude.


Now, the answer everyone assumed you already knew:
Moving files requires disk activity, processing, and short-term storage either in the form of RAM or Virtual RAM (Pagefile). ALL of these resources are limited and an OS happens to depend on ALL of them. Like any other bottleneck, running short on one of these resources will slow down your system.
