Slow Folder/File Access - Windows 2011 SBS
Posted on 2013-01-28
I have an usual problem with slow folder/file access for one user only. The PC they are using is brand new and the folder share is over a fast LAN to a new server after an SBS2003 to SBS2011 migration.
On the shared drive there are two folders used by this user for creating PO's which are created from a MS Word 2010 template. These two folder take around 10 seconds to access and only these two folders. All others on the shared drive open instantly.
Now when I log on to the same PC I can access the two problem folders without any issues so this seems to be related to the user's profile and these two shared folders. If I copy the contents from one of these folders to a new folder the problem still happens.
The folder only has about 200 x 85kb word docs. Now these docs are created from a template in word some am wondering if this is having an impact?
Any ideas are greatly appreciated.
