Why documents are running slow on a specific folder on the server?

I was checking a user folder on his computer where he has all his information within the server, theres an issue any documents that i open within that folder is slow "word, excel, txt, etc" even deleating anything in his folder is slow , so what i did was i took a document that was slow in that folder and move it into his desktop i opened that document and it was working fine and fast, i checked the same document on the folder again and is slow, so i made another folder on the server moved that document on that folder and it was working fine too, all users are working fine with their documents except him that are running slow, i am running Windows SBS 2003, and his computer is working fine.

If there is a large number of files in a folder it will slow down access to it. Reduce the number of files (if possible use more sub directories).
