Please, why the sas entreprise guide task : copy file( task-->add-in--> copy file from/to server) is not very fast .
For 3GB, it takes about 40 minutes ?
Is it possible to keep the sas code generating "copy file from/to server" ?
If not, can we link a sas program to copy file from/to server?

The Copy Files task uses your connection to the SAS session to move files across the network. It's speed is sensitive to network latency -- so, slow connection will result in longer transfer times.
You can use other mechanisms if your network setup allows: standard FTP tools, SAS/CONNECT with PROC UPLOAD and DOWNLOAD from a Local SAS to remote SAS, etc. Often for PC EG users, the Copy Files task is the main way to move files around from PC to SAS and vice versa.

@ChrisHemedinger : Thank you. That's very kind from you.
So, I do not have a sas/connect. I have only the sas EG task copy..any suggestions to make a fast copy are welcomed.
