You'd think. Might be disk read/write instead, I suppose - but that
should be a thin wrapper as well.

Shouldn't be - cwRsync uses 3.0, previously I used various 2.x
versions on Windows. The NAS uses 3.0.4, the Apples use 2.6.9, Linux

Slightly under 3meg/second... which doesn't make much sense. Using
"xcopy /r src dest" and a stopwatch gives me 24meg/second!

This is a different winbox to the one I used originally 18 months ago,
both hardware and software. This is XP, that was Win2000.
Odd, eh? Never mind.
