Our office copiers automatically deliver scans via SMB to a shared network folder. These files always and consistently appear on Windows XP workstations. On Windows 7 (x64) workstations, however, new files sometimes do not appear. I've tried refreshing, manipulating the files on a Windows XP workstation, and other various unsuccessful tactics, but usually they simply appear after a period of time (anywhere from 30 seconds to hours later).
Was something changed in the way Windows 7 accesses network folders, and is there anything I can do to resolve this? I have noticed that large network folders take seem to longer to load in Win7 than in XP, as though Win7 is running an extra process as they load.
FYI, we use Kaspersky Enterprise Protection suite on both WinXP and Win7 workstations. Because the problem happens intermittently, I have been unable to test whether this might be the cause.
Thanks in advance for any assistance!
