It should not take 10 minutes, I transfer large files over my two pc's via a router and it takes approximately 20 seconds to transfer 200Mb. In theory it should be about 1 minute to transfer 700Mb.

All of the hard drives on mine are ATA 100, with an older system that used to be connected it had a ATA 33 HD and file transfer then took forever to the slower pc.

it seems that your network is running at 10Mbps rather than 100Mbps
