Screencast: File Services in Windows Server 2008 (SMB Protocol Comparison)
About This Video
One of the biggest improvements in Windows Server 2008 and Windows Vista is in the area of file services. Think about it. Everyone uses files shares and copies files. We now have an updated SMB protocol in Windows Server 2008 and Windows Vista that significantly improves the file copy process for users.
In this screencast I'm going to take you through some comparisons of using Windows XP with Windows Server 2003 R2 vs using it with Windows Server 2008 and using Windows Vista with Windows Server 2003 R2 vs Windows Server 2008.
Hopefully this gives you and idea that if you just change the client or the server you get significant benefits and if you change both then it gets even better.
I'm going to post this on my blog along with some additional resources so head over to
