SMB: Digitally signed communication should be required or disabled


I have a Domain Controller 2008 R2 with severals shared folders...  all the clients are Windows 10 Pro 64 bits.

I have slow network copy over network.

If I turn off the Digitally signed communication on the Domain Controller 2008 R2, can I have any unexpected behavior and it is a good thing to do to improve network copy speed ?

You will get some performance gains, but with good hardware, signing is not overly burdensome.  If you have other machines configured to require signing then the unexpected behavior would be failure to connect to shares.
