Microsoft File Share using Storage Spaces Direct Fail-over Clustering Servers.

This File share is used for many millions of small files. For end users the search, and simply loading of each folder contents takes forever!!! 1 minute + at times maybe up to 30 mins for searches. The interesting part about this is it only happens for "users" When myself or a few other IT members attempt it works instantly! Speed isn't an issue and server resources aren't contended for that i'm seeing. It is appearing to be something with permissions.

User A - slow to load, takes forever, searches spin for 30 mins.
When we give User A Domain Admin rights - Everything becomes instant!!!!!
Remove Domain Admin and the user is back to the normal slowness.

The user has Modify Privileges on the file share.
Sadly do I have to give permissions to the CNO in AD? If so, what permissions do I need to allow?
