Hey Guys

i have a network that consists of 30 laptops and 1 SBS 2003 server.. all the laptops came preloaded with XP but last week i started upgrading the laptops to windows 7. Ever since i upgraded i am having problems with connecting to my network drives. When i would click on the Network drive it will take mintues for it to open.  Any ideas? thank you

In Control Panel -> Network and Sharing Center -> Advanced - make sure you are on Home/Work (not Homegroup or Public) and make sure the settings in there reflect permission for network discovery, file and print sharing, password protected access, high encryption, etc.)  

Then in Windows Explorer -> Folder Options -> View - make sure you are not using the sharing wizard.

Finally map your folders with Map Network Drive, NET USE Z: \\server\folder, or in Active Directory for a domain connected machine, make sure the Home Folders are set.   ... Thinkpads_User
