Throttle a windows network transfer (copy)

A while back I wanted to try and throttle a file copy between servers across a wan link vpn.

I struggled to find a solution to this, however in the end I came across a program from nullsoft (creators of winamp), its a freebie and was developed ages ago. However I have found the program to work extremely well.

To transfer to a network location you have to be able to map a drive to that location, and you can only copy entire folders. But for what I wanted this is fine.

You can then control bandwidth on the slider bar.

The program is called nscopy, it was available from nullsoft directly but that link appears to be gone. However I have found a download here
