Slow exploring UNC Share, then hangs
Posted on 2006-11-14
When I am sitting at a remote machine and type in \\servername\c$ and start delving into the folder directory the explorer window starts getting slower and slower, when I'm about 3 to 4 folders down it pretty much hangs. It only happens on these remote machines which are on a cisco switch connected via a 100Mbit Fiber, about 300ft. It seems to only be affecting file exploring, I can use RDP to remotely control the servers with no problems. I checked and verified that the Full duplex and speed are hard coded correctly on all the ports and devices. Unfortunatley I don't have equipment to test the fiber. What I don't understand is why it is only it only seems to affect file browsing through a UNC.
