"My Pictures" Opens very slow
Posted on 2009-04-06
I'm running about 25 XP SP3 clients on an SBS 2003 network. I have a client with a fairly fast computer. He can open anything without any problems, but when he clicks on his "My Pictures" folder, it literally takes anywhere from 5-20 minutes to open.
All the "My Documents" folders are redirected to a shared drive on the SBS. From the client computer with the problem, I can go to \\servername\users\username\my documents\my pictures and his pictures open just fine. But, when I go to his "My Pictures" directly from the start menu or via "My Documents" it just stops and takes a long time to open.
I even copied his "My Pictures" to a different location on the network, then I deleted "My Pictures" off his computer, emptied the recycle bin, made a new empty folder in "My Documents" called "My Pictures" and when I tried to open that folder, it was still very slow.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
