I just brought a new computer online with my network of 30 other devices. This is the only one that cannot save an e-mail attachment to a mapped network drive without spending 60 to 90 seconds "initializing root folders." What is causing this, and how can I get rid of it?

What e-mail program are you using? Also how are you moving the messages? For instance using Outlook one might have a .pst folder setup and you drag/drop messages from you inbox to the .pst file. Is that similar to what you are doing or are you just dragging the messages out of the e-mail program into a directory.

I'm not moving messages, just trying to save attachments to mapped network drives. The "initializing root folders" message also comes up when trying to save a locally-created Word or Excel document to a mapped network drive. The e-mail client is MS Outlook from an Exchange 2007 Server.

Ooops sorry about that. My eyes somehow skipped right by the word attachments in your initial post.

No problem sharing. I first checked the popular solution of disconnected network drives, but there weren't any. Then I remembered that the user had loaded some files from a bootable flash drive, and sure enough ! She hadn't not ejected the drive correctly, and the computer was still looking for it. After the hardware was officially ejected, the error stopped occuring.
