We use Access Essentials.  Within Citrix the network data folder works great - everything opens up instantly but when users access their my documents there is a delay.  The My Pictures is the slowest - it takes up to 30 seconds to open but if you open a picture on the data folder it opens up instantly.  But in general the my documents is overall slower.

Use Sysinternal Procmon to see what is causing the delay.

We have a seperate Citrix server.  All of our data lives on the "main server" and not the Citirx server.  Does that answer your question?

I still recommend using ProcMon to see where the delay may be.

Ok I'll run it.  What am I looking for?

Can you take an account that has folder redirection enabled and RDP to the server and see what the response is?
