Tales from the Development Crypt: Snapshooting 450GB

We have recently crossed the bounds of our specialization to set a world record in data transfer rate by throwing a 450GB file from one machine to another in only 1 minute! It was surprisingly easy: all we had to do was find a fast-running developer and equip the guy with an HDD!
Fake world records aside, only 4 months since our previous milestone, we’ve collected and successfully opened a 450GB snapshot. We mean it. Anyone ever seen a .NET profiler lifting that much weight?
