Thanks for posting this. I'm collecting some data on the impact of BBWC and was wondering if you get a chance could you turn it off to see what speed you get then? Is the speed via the console or in a VM?

Thanks,
Dave

Turn the BBWC off? No way mate :) (it works fine now, I don't want to touch it to be honest)
The speed was noticed in the console when copying a VMDK file.
