    Well take a 100MB file and copy it.

    You can create a file by using

    Code:
    fsutil file [createnew] <FileName> <Length>
    ie
    Code:
    fsutil file createnew c:\temp\100mb.dat 104857600

    thanks for your reply. I have done that and it only shows me the copying process. It does not tell me at what speed the copying process is taking. Using ftp it does but I'd like to use plain old windows explorer. Is there maybe a tool I can dl that will show me what I want?

    If you know the distance and you know the time you can work out the speed with speed = distance / time

    In this case it'd be the file size in bytes / time, surely?
