Hello Kev,

if you want to do some optimization work for copy,
can you have a look at this bug report :

Using nio for copy operations to network drives under Windows brings a
huge performance improvement.
I used it on Windows 2000 or 2003 and JDK 1.4, with as target some
drives automounted from a NAS box.

With NIO the copy speed is at least 4 times as big.

This type of progress dwarfs logging optimization.

Of course, this is mainly to be used (or only) in the case when one
copies 100% of the content of a file to another location,
no filtering takes place.
