    File copying without making the PC lag

    I'm looking for a solution that intergrates into explorer drag and drop that does not make the system go to a crawl copying large files over the network.

    - Explore standard copy
    - Terra copy
    - fast copy
    - Xcopy with /j switch

    All makes my system lag

    Is there a tool out there that support copying without making the systme lag. by using low I/o priority or some other method to be more nice to the system ?

    Maybe robocopy or richcopy with bandwidth restriction.

    Best regards,

    I tried robocopy with /igp:10 it did a no real diffrence. then i tried with /igp:100 it was alot smooth operation the pc but copy speed plummeted to below 1/10th

    I will check rsync

    Check i just tried /IGP:10 + lowering I/O, CPU & memory priority.
    still big slowdowns
