One mapped network share very slow

I have a client running SBS2011 with six shares mapped to user workstations.  The users are given access to the shares based on security group membership.  One of the shares only has four (4) users in the security.  Access this particular share is very slow in all aspects (eg:  opening a file, saving a file, copying to/from).  I have compared the setup of this share to the other shares that don't have issues and everything appears to be setup properly.  Any ideas?

Are there many directories or small files in that share? A large number of files and directories usually slows down the system, as it takes time to load the directory structure, and often also the antivirus utilities need to scan it all when you access the share.

@rindi - I just checked and that share actually has few total files and less usage than three of the other five that have no issues.

Check and see if there are multiple connections left open. Is there an app running from the share, for example Time Slips or Quick Books? Sometimes the server keeps connections open that users are unaware of.

Go to Start / Administrative Tools / Share and Storage Management / on the right check Manage Open Files.

I would close any connections to the share and test, start here let us know.

You may have anti-virus software scanning this one particular share from the server, check to see that your AV is configured the same for all mapped drives.

Wouldn't hurt to configure auditing on the share as well.
