Windows 8 PC shared folder + Slow for users to access
Posted on 2014-10-27
I have a customer who does not have a budget for a server until next year. So in the interim I have installed a W8 PC with a secondary drive for Data access. This is shared on the network. This is a solid state harddrive.
When the users access the network share \\PCName\shared folder it operates as expected. When we open an office document there is a short delay, but when we save a document/s it takes around 5-7 seconds.
The PC's accessing the Windows 8 are running a mixture of W8 and W7.
I have added the location in trusted locations, disabled the AV and this makes no difference.
Can anyone advise if this is the best it will operate or is there anything else I can try?
Many thanks in advance.
