Pardon me for butting where I can't speak with full authority, but...
I believe that the problem is that all of the concurrent copies you are running are using a single
connection to the file server... so the requests are interleaved _synchronously_ on a single TCP/IP
connection. Nothing more happens until each request in turn is serviced completely. My impression
is that the SMB protocol does not support asynchronous I/O. You could get concurrent independant
operations if each copy were running on a different connection; which could be accomplished with
Make each "drive" connection to a different alias for the host. The client wouldn't know that all
are the same computer and will give you separate TCP/IP connections for each one; thus enabling
simultaneous, mutually asynchronous operations.
