Slow response time with open, save as, or insert into on Windows XP Pro
Posted on 2004-11-24
Why does client system take so long to open, save as, or insert into a file on the server? We have new Dell Optiplex workstations. Operating system is Windows XP SP2 (problem existed before SP2 was installed). Office 2003. When I try to insert a file into Outlook, or open a file in Excel, or save as (in any program) the appropriate window opens (Open, Save As, for example), but when I select "Look in:" and try to select a location response is very slow. System may take up to more than a minute to show the folders in the selected location and may take up to three minutes to drill down through the folders and open up the desired file. Is there a fix?
