Slow access to other network PCs
Posted on 2004-04-21
I've upgraded my PC and got the shop to copy over the old hard disk onto the new PC. Had a few issues with moving from win2kSP4 to win2kSP3 but got that resolved.
We have 3 computers permanently on a lan - using the basic workgroup setup. One is just a standard win2k professional PC but it acts as our server - ie v.little software installed, no one actually uses it.
The current problem is that when I'm using Windows Explorer to view the files in a folder it's unbearably slow. This is for a folder with, say, 65 objects in list view. It's ok from the other computer which access the "server".
I'm guessing that there's something on the network that's got jiggered in the upgrading, moving files thing but don't know what to investigate. Any ideas?
