I did some research and this is what I came up with. Make sure you backup your machine and/or registry before making any changes:

Apparently Windows reg keys need to be modified to instruct the system to act as a file server and that it should allocate resources accordingly.  Set the following registry key to ‘1’:

HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\LargeSystemCache

and set the following registry key to ‘3’:

HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters\Size

Say, is a reboot required after these changes? I have not rebooted since the changes.
Also see below pics of disk access. Does this look like a problem?
What info can I gather and how to assist with diagnosis of issue?

Are you still getting the error?
If you are, then yes I would recommend a reboot - although I recommend you consult your coworkers/bosses and systems admin before rebooting a production system - there may be a critical service running on or attached to it that cannot be shutdown during peak business hours for example.

From your first screenshot it looks like your search indexer is taking up a lot of disk I/O

well... if you dont need search indexing i would disable it altogether. run "services.msc" find the Windows Search service, right click on it, click stop, then disable. Thats it :)

No applications are run on the server. It is only a file server. Is this service required for speedier file access?
