I can also tentatively report better results. I put in a gb switch at
the colo site connecting the servers I had here at my place before. So
now I have the exact same hardware that gave me trouble before. I just
finished a 100GB backup from a Win2003 physical server to a Win2008R2 VM
using that new preWHQL driver in the 2008R2 VM and it ran to completion
in 5 hours and 8 minutes. I am starting up one more test that will
backup around 175 GB. I will report results here when it finishes a few
hours from now.

Is the virtio issue happens with Vadim's latest drivers?
We experienced a similar problem, while copying a bulk of data to
several VMs (Windows 2008 / 64 Bit). I was able to recreate this
So far, I'm unable to recreate the problem with the preWHQL drivers
provided by Vadim. It looks good from my point ot view, now!
