A public forum for discussing the design of software, from the user interface to the code architecture. Now closed.
When transferring a file across my network to another Windows machine, I have no ability to throttle or resume the file transfer. Why?
Also, is there some way to add this sort of functionality into Windows Explorer somehow? This seems like such an obvious feature; it's hardly a feature.. more of a requirement in my mind.

I believe you can get front ends for the Windows background transfer service (the thing that Windows update uses). This does some of what you want such as resuming after a shutdown. It also auto throttles to not interfere with any foregrond tasks.

robocopy lets you throttle network utilization:
synctoy has a gui:
Raymond Chen wrote up a good article on why you cannot (and shouldn't be able to) resume transfers.
It's buried deep somewhere in http://blogs.msdn.com/oldnewthing/
