http://serverfault.com – Here's the thing... I have a very slow file copy performance from Windows XP clients to Windows 2008R2 servers.

I have tried everything: Disabling SMB2.0, disabling security signatures, changing the TCP Window size, disabling the W2K8 auto tuning, upgraded the drivers, etc. We eliminated the network; both the server and the clie (HowTos)
