Server 2008 File Share

When I try to add a user to folder security\ giving them full control of a shared folder, our Server 2008 slows down to a crawl. For the most part, users are unable to save to the file server until the process is complete. The process takes several minutes. Shared folder is 100GB.

That's because you're modifying the ACLs of the folder.  This is something that should be avoided.  You should NEVER had users directly to file shares/folder security (with RARE exception, such as their own home drives).  Instead, you create a group for access to that folder and then add and remove users as necessary, assigning the group to have access to the folder.

FYI... Still, if the OP adds or removes a group to the ACL, he'll get the same issue.

Yes, but if the system is setup properly from the start, these problems are few and far between and can be scheduled even.  You are FAR more likely to have users change than you are to have groups change.

Got it.. We’re a relatively small organization with a handful of departments that consist of 1 person. That being said, I can still put them in a group...after hours.
