will run the netsh commands to disable SMB after hours tonight.
But i cant see that saving any file properties to the NTFS is causing issues as setting DocTitle etc in PDF works without delay.
Issue appears to have become worse in last 2 or 3 weeks but cant narrow it down to any Win8 or Office update.
Any ideas as I'm copping it from frustrated users.?
Believe SkyDrive sync is already disabled as much as possible.
