Incredibly slow network browsing in all Office Save / Save As boxes
Posted on 2007-11-20
I have a customer running a SBS 2003 Domain with very decent spec XP Machines. They are struggling on a couple of the machines to save office files to the shared (and mapped) drive on the server, as it takes an incredibly long time (sometimes up to 5 minutes per folder change) to browse through folders on the mapped drive when in the save / save as box.
If they browse to the mapped drive through explorer or my computer it works perfectly, with no delay and similarly it works fin when using other programs such as Photoshop.
This problem only seems to affect Office programs and I'm stumped. Any suggestions would be great.
