mapping shared folders dramatically delays read/write processes

Discussion in 'Server Networking' started by Alexander Skordos, Nov 19, 2003.

  1. when i try to copy a folder with many small sized files to
    a shared folder on the file server, the process takes very
    little time, unless the same folder is also mapped to my
    XP Pro computer with any drive letter...the mapping
    produces a great delay in the whole process...Why?
    i need to map shared folders to drive letters to work with
    some applications...any suggestions?
    i also used the share through the active directory with no
    difference in the results...V.S.W.M. very slow when mapped
