That said, this finding proved more problematic, “Due to the estimated speed of transfer (23 MB/s) calculated in this study, it is unlikely that this initial data transfer could have been done remotely over the Internet.” It drew a strong reaction because many computer savvy users and technologists had direct experience with Internet connections that they were certain could sustain those speeds.
The statement as it stands, lacks context, because when written the Forensicator viewed Guccifer 2 as a remote hacker who hailed from Eastern Europe or Russia and used a VPN service or some similar technique to mask his IP. In that context, Forensicator concluded that it would be unlikely for a 23 MB/s transfer rate to be sustained remotely. Unfortunately, that critical assumption was not stated in the analysis.
Even if the 23 MB/s transfer rate can be achieved over the Internet, there are other requirements that must be met by a proposed alternative scenario. A detailed analysis can be found in Alternative Scenarios.
There was evidence of two copy operations, one on July 5, 2016 and another on Sept. 1, 2016; both had Eastern time zone settings in force. The file last mod times for the first copy suggested the use of the Unix/Linux ‘cp’ commandb, which is typically used to copy files locally. The files created by the second copy operation had file times recorded with 2 second resolution. This suggested a FAT-formatted media which in turn suggests the use of something like a USB flash drive. The file transfer times on the first copy were in line with the use of a USB-2 device and seemed too fast for most Internet users, especially those using a VPN or some other intermediate system used to mask their IP address.
In order to do a remote desktop operation, there must be software running on the remote machine.

It's cute that multiple intelligence agencies have said there is, without a shadow of a doubt, proof that the Russian government was involved in hacking, people still deny it as if they actually know better. It happened.. get over it. The question is if Trump's campaign was involved. I still don't think he was.. NO one is so stupid as to ask the Russian to hack the election during a televised event.. right? hmmm..
Oh wait I forgot.. ALL our intelligence agencies are part of the "deep state" that are ALL trying to undermine Trump. Also the earth is flat.
