Windows guest PV driver issues
To anyone running windows HVM guests with the PV drivers. I am experiencing issues on windows guests when copying large files between two guest virtual block devices. The copy halts after only a few GB and drops to 0 bytes/s, the storage is fine and seeing no IO.

I've tried on windows server 2016 and 2019, both seem to do it. My dom0 is Debian Buster running their most recent release of xen4.11. The same test on linux guests works without issue.
