I would have a look at perfmon, checking network and disk related
counters, in order to locate the bottleneck.
(assuming you are running windows!)

Subject: [windows2000] Upgrading to gigabit network

Hi group,
At home, I have a 100Mbps network setup and I'm trying to find out if
it'd be worth upgrading my hardware to support gigabit speeds.  I'm
doing a lot of moving large files among machines, and it takes quite a
while.  But, is the speed more determined by the target machine's hard
drive?  The network speed?  Something else?  Most of the machines in my
domain have ordinary ATA/100 7200 RPM hard drives.  It takes about 23
minutes to move a 4.3 GB file from my machine to another.  I have one 16
port switch and four 4-8 port switches I'd have to replace, so before
incurring that expense, I'd like to know if there'd be any real benefit
to it.
Thank you,
Ray at home
