We've recently upgraded a few Mac workstations from Mac OS X Snow Leopard (10.6.8) to Yosemite (10.10.2) to accommodate using Adobe Creative Cloud 2014. The server that the operators work from is running Mac OS X Snow Leopard Server (10.6.8). The Yosemite users complain that directory updates take forever when the server volume is mounted via AFP. When the volume is mounted via SMB, directory updates are instantaneous but when they write files from the Adobe apps it creates additional files with ":AFP_AfpInfo" appended to the filename. Navigating through these files to find the actual work file is cumbersome. Deleting these additional files does not impact the actual working file in anyway.
Is there a way I can either speed up Finder when the volume is mounted AFP? Or, is there a way I can prevent the creation of these extra alternative stream files?
Users running Snow Leopard have no problems.
