OK, I've tried doing this with a Futurama video (I used Movie Maker to make
it into a Pocket PC optimised file) so that made it 63MB which is
thereabouts OK. That works fine.

I tried zipping my entire Counter-Strike directory which amazingly comes to
1.02GB and that also works fine... try submitting this as a bug :o)

Sorry to hear that :) Sounds like I've got a bit more work ahead of me.

What was the system configuration on the other machine?

Well, I had two machines:

Machine 1: \\VISTACHROME
256MB RAM, AMD 1900+ 32-bit processor
30GB hard disk space, Glass enabled.
System Performance Rating: 2

Machine 2: \\VISTAPLATINUM
1GB RAM, Dual Core AMD 64
230GB hard disk space, Glass enabled.
System Performance Rating: 4

Transported files from \\VISTACHROME to \\VISTAPLATINUM over the network,
with Windows Server 2003 R2 server in place.

Zack - I'm not sure that I can. I'm one of them beta-tester wannabies so I
don't have access to the connect site...

Ahh course you can! Download the Beta Client here:
http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=43655 and when you go to submit,
simply click the button that says "File this report anonymously".

But the question asks... how did you get the copy of 5308 if you're not a
tester? ;o)

and got your hands on 5342, I'd be worried! :oP
