Just installed a new HP Proliant as a file server with XP pro - yes, I know server sw would be better but there are reasons. 8 workstations - usually no more than 4 in use & 3 network printers
The problem is that, although the new server is much better spec, opening word/excel files can be very slow & saving them too. Accessing the shared folder is fine as is actually browsing for the files.
Any settings/tools that could help in resolving this issue?
Not much on recommended file server settings for xp pro - do you have any?
Many thanks in advance.
