Trying to zip file size 800MB takes 16 Mins on Windows server 2008 the same code on PC/Laptop takes 3 mins.


why is this very slow on Windows Server 2008.


Anyone had this problem please advice.


Thanking you in advance


Code Example:






using (ZipFile zip = new ZipFile())



zip.CompressionLevel = Ionic.Zlib.CompressionLevel.BestCompression;
