copying certain files to usb hangs PC?

Post by shorterxp » Wed Jun 06, 2018 11:00 am

I have a folder with the following files,
They take forever to copy to a USB drive.
If compressed beforehand, copies at normal speed.
More of a curiosity than an urgent problem... Any ideas?

UPDATE: It's likely this has something to do with the Background Intelligent Transfer Service being absent from this XP install (removed with nlite). Why does BITS influence explorer like this, any ideas??

What're the versions of your machine's NTFS.SYS and zipfldr.dll?

5.1.2600.5512 for NTFS

zipfldr.dll shouldn't matter, the problem is copying files in a regular folder.
The files were not compressed with zip to begin with fyi, I just compressed them to test, i.e. when zipped, same files transfer faster than if they aren't. Explorer is doing something funny...

The USB stick in quesiton is 32GB 2.0 if that means anything. Not only do xx_ files hang the transfer, but any .cab does too.

Also, when navigating the files on the stick it sometimes takes a while to refresh. Makes me think its related to indexing service (off) and the fact its 32gb. stick.

Do you have an antivirus ? It may be related.

No anti-virus running.

It worked fine before I re-did an nlite of SP3 to integreate AHCI drivers. Then I booted up that copy and made it main boot.

It seems some MCP78 (nforce) chipsets suffered from perfomance issue around 2009 and few people provided unofficial fall back modded drivers, so I'll try those.

Tried alternative 'optimized' chipset drivers on fresh install of nlited XP, same thing happens.
Explorer goes unresponsive if you click cancel; the only way to get PC to respond is to unplug USB stick.
There are no reports of Kingston DTSE9 32Gb stick failing online, so I'm left to assume its something to do with OS configuration and nlite.
Its just strange individual files hang explorer like this.

Power isnt an issue; removed all other devices from usb ports and transfers are still slow. Tried alternative USB Stick too.

According to on post on MS forums, I think this issue lies with Background Intelligent Transfer Service being removed with nlite.
I should try another image with BITS included see if that changes anything first, if it does, we should ask ourselves why the **** BITS, a network-related service, slows affects explorer like this.
