Issues with Thumbnail View and files on server
Posted on 2013-10-22
We have a corp office in NJ and a sattelite office in Florida. The server (windows 2011) is located in NJ and the florida office connects to our server via a VPN tunnel/connection through our cisco routers.
In Florida, when they try to open a shared folder from our NJ server, here's what happens. The folder typically houses 100+ jpg files (each under 1MB in size) and they want to view the entire folder in thumbnail view so they can easiely determine which photos needed to be further edited. Maybe 60% of the files display in thumbnail view but the rest display with that windows 7 standard Icon. some eventually change to thumbnail but usually dont.
Any thoughts or suggestions? The florida office has a really good high speed connection to the internet. Increase the RAM to the server would be my first suggestion?
