View Full Version : [ubuntu] Why do Vista to Ubuntu File transfers take so long?

I am somewhat new to Linux, but have set up a share on my Ubuntu Machine so that I can move some of my files from my Vista machine over. One thing I noticed is that the file transfers (particularly the one I am on, which is about 910MB) take so long - this one took 6 minutes? I am sure it is not my network as transfers of the same size between my two windows machines takes about a quarter of the time.

Is this simply a result of the environment (two diff file systems)?
