Win2K Professional Slow Directory-Access
Posted on 2003-03-07
I have a 1Gig Pentium III with 512kb RAM running Win2K Pro. I have a 30gig IDE-Harddisk.
There are some Network-Drives Mapped.
Now, the problem: When I open a "File Dialog" ie. "file open" or "save" it takes up to 20 seconds to display the directory Tree. I have this problem in every Program I use. (office stuff, winzip, winExplorer...)
It's not "only" the Directory tree that displays slowly... in my opinion, the whole PC runs much tooo slow for what it is.
On the other hand, I have an older Pentium II 800mhz running NT4.0. There, the Problem does not occur... even the Installed software and mapped drives are about the same as on the win2k Machine...
Any Idea? Are there some buttons to press i missed all the time?
Thank you for any Help.
