Speed of Cygwin's cp vs. Windows Explorer
Sat May 12 14:41:00 GMT 2007
Why would using Cygwin's cp to copy a large file from one Windows XP
box to another take 30 minutes but take only 10 minutes if I use drag
'n' drop (via Explorer)?
I saw mention of speed in other posts but couldn't figure out if there
was a solution - could it be buffer sizes or something configurable?
I'm in a position of defending the use of Cygwin instead of the manual
Windows way of doing things by those not familiar with Unix. Any
hints would be appreciated.
