Windows 7: Slow connection to shared files on Windows 2008 Server R2

Slow connection to shared files on Windows 2008 Server R2

Hello People,

I have recently upgraded a computer system from xp to windows 7 via vista (along way I know and not my personal choice).

The pc is connected via ethernet to a windows server 2008 r2, from where it has access to various documents they use.

After the upgrade, the access time to load / edit these files is very slow compared to what it was under Windows XP.

Has anyone here had a similar experience, or maybe know of a tweak to make the file access quicker ?

Windows 7 Enterprise (x64); Windows Server 2008 R2 (x64)

Yep, sure have. The problem is that the machine was XP to Vista to Windows 7. The only fix we found for this was to WIPE the drive and install Windows 7 from scratch on the machine. Wish I had better news. -WS
