No problems. File copy/move is now a reasonable speed.

This does not work for me. I double click on it and it brings up a command prompt which exits. How do you use it?

Killed my Internet connection, something about dependency or group services failed to start. Uninstalled the update and all is well again.

I tried this:
Select a large dir with 1.3 gigs and 6,000 files.

On vista, it sat there for 12 seconds calculating and heavy disk activity. It never did provide me a speed or calculation for the mass deletion. I don't have previous versions enabled.

On XP the folder was deleted in half a second.

Perhaps Vista is checking with MS to make sure the files are appropriate for deletion?

Glad I decided to pay for this beta OS.

I tested file transfer speeds before and after this update. I'm pleased with the results. Before the update, I was transferring at about 10MB/s. After the update, I was able to get to 13MB/s. A 30% increase is welcome.
