I have a small network - 1 Server (SBS2008) & 7 workstations (all windows 7 pro x64). We also have a stand-alone files server (windows 2008) that is not a domain member.
I have a user that access a share on the file server using a mapped drive letter to the network path. Explorer takes 10-30 seconfs to display the contents of every directory. This is annoying and now getting in the way of productivity.
Oddly - when the use access the share using the UNC path in the explorer windows the behavior is fast and almost instantaneously displays the contects of each folder.
This has been reproduced on 3 different workstations with the same reult.
Is there a windows setting or registry hack to make exploreing the drive maping useful?
