Windows 11 operating system Users who have encountered an issue where they find that large files are being copied very slowly, will be happy to hear that Microsoft has now fixed the problem.
This issue affects Windows 11 22H2, and note that the fix is in the recently released preview build 25252. So in other words, those who are testing the operating system now have access to the fix, to run it through its steps and make sure everything works correctly.
Naturally, it will eventually reach the Windows 11 version. shred computer bleed (Opens in a new tab) “The final fix for a Windows 11 22H2 production PC will come in a regular monthly cumulative update through Windows Update once validated by Insider Builds,” Ned Pyle, Microsoft’s Principal Program Manager in the Windows Server Engineering Group, informed us.
Performance is significantly reduced when copying larger files – which simply means that it will take longer to copy than it should, and doing some reporting, it may take twice as long in fact – it starts “when copying files larger than a remote computer accesses a working computer,” Pyle explained. with Windows 11 or when copying files to a local drive.
Pyle added that PCs on home or small office networks were less likely to encounter this error, but could still encounter this issue: “You’re most likely to encounter this problem copying files to Windows 11 version 22H2 from network sharing via Server Message “Blocked (SMB) but local file copy may also be affected”.
Analysis: It’s not too long now for the full fix release, hopefully
This would obviously be a welcome decision, as copying large files can be a painful enough time consuming, without having to flick your fingers on the desk for up to twice as long as usual.
However, it is still in testing at the moment, so this won’t help those who are running the release version of Windows 11. When will the fix actually hit real-world PCs? This is tricky, because it depends on how the test is done, naturally.
However, what we do know is that this won’t be here this month, as the December cumulative update has already been pushed out (in preview), and is therefore very close on the horizon (it will be released in less than two weeks now). What we can hope for is a smooth path with testing meaning we’ll see this remedy bundled with the Windows 11 January Update, which launches on January 10 — which is still a long way off.
We could still wait a little longer if, of course, the testers spot any fix bugs, or indeed other unexpected problems introduced elsewhere (this wouldn’t be the first time that patching one bug caused another, as we’ve all done seen in the past when you play Microsoft bug whack-a-mole).
Microsoft has been busy fixing a whole host of frustrating issues affecting some parts of the Windows 11 user base lately. includes a Bad bug causing stuttering while playing games And very prickly Gremlin who broke half of some printersnot to mention a A glitch slows down the CPU.
Windows 11 is slowly but surely transitioning into a smoother experience in this regard, though in an ideal world we wouldn’t see much Major bugs come first.
