Speed up copying of Large files in Windows Vista

You may have noticed that Vista has a tendency to take time calculating the size of the file when copying. This is caused by a new 'feature' called Auto Tuning which by default is set on by Microsoft.

To disable this feature, do the following...

1. Open up a Command Prompt with Administrator privileges
2. Type in ... netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled
3. The prompt should read... OK
4. You may have to restart the PC for the effects to take hold.

If this does not solve your problem, the autotuning feature can be re-instated by typing...

netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=normal.

Cloud computing - what it is and how it has evolved

Many years ago Internet Service Providers (ISP's) and internet hosting companies languished in profits when users used the ISP's servers and hosting services to hold emails and files. At that time, these services were simply known as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) and just plain email (or POP3 email) services.During the noughties (2000-2009) or the oo's (ooh's) some may call it, Microsoft, developed their server systems and brought us newer technologies that allowed small and medium enterprises to host their own mail and filing systems, in the form of Microsoft Servers or Microsoft Small Business Servers (SBS), running Microsoft Exchange and Sharepoint services.This left many an ISP with little joy as they saw their profits from hosting, eroded by users and enterprises migrating away from their hosted services and starting up their own Microsoft server systems.So the question was, how do the hosting companies get users to come back to their hosted systems, which they hav…
