Speed up your network – Turn off Remote Differential Compression

First off, what is Remote Differential Compression?  Wikipedia defines it as, “Remote Differential Compression (RDC) is a client–server synchronization algorithm that allows the contents of two files to be synchronized by communicating only the differences between them.”

Enabled by default in Windows 7, it is ironically disabled in Server 2008 r2.

Remote Differential Compression when enabled can slow your network down.
