Windows File Transfer waits in queue...


Recommended Posts

On recent build Windows puts file transfers in queue...

 

For example I try to transfer

File A to Drive A

File B to Drive B

File C to Drive C

File D to Drive D

 

Instead of transfering all files at the same time, it will transfer the last file first (D), once D is done it will start on C and after done with C, it starts with B etc...

 

Anyone know how to fix that?

Have you tried TeraCopy?

Depending on where your transferring to, that might be a good thing to help prevent fragmentation.

 

but if your transferring in a way that's not writing two files to the same hard drive at the same time(NOTE: I would generally avoid writing two files or more to the same hard drive at the same time to help prevent fragmentation), the last I knew on Win10, you can still force the transfer to start even though by default it queues up like you mentioned but I think you can just click it to force it to start manually.

 

plus, even fragmentation aside... if your reading/writing multiple files between same hard drives it will likely slow down as in cases like this your probably better off letting them transfer one at a time. that's why when I transfer stuff I only start multiple transfers if there is only one stream of data between each hard drive.... so say one has four hard drives, HDD1 to HDD2, HDD3 to HDD4 would be fine to start all at the same time and you will basically get max speed this way. but if your trying to do something like HDD1 to HDD2 and HDD1 to HDD3 it's going to slow down etc (even though in this second example you would no have issues with fragmenting since it's writing to HDD2 and HDD3 and reading from HDD1). I am sure you get the gist of what I am saying here ;)
