Windows 7: Slow Response From Mapped Network Drive

Slow Response From Mapped Network Drive

Hello all,

I have 2 mapped network drives to my local server, they are letters H & K. H is in \\server\data\users\name and K is \\server\data.

Here is where my issue is, the K drive is very slow and times out most of my programs when working in there, H is very fast almost instantaneous. I mapped a network drive L to \\server\data and it is also very fast. So they only thing I can think of is my computer doesn't like the drive K for some reason.

Do you have any ideas? Also, forgot to mention this is only happening for me, the other computers on the network all are working perfectly.

Thanks

Mike

mroseto,
Welcome to SF. I have a similar issue with three connected external drive, both esata's are blazing fast but the usb attached has a delay as it responds to a request to spin up. Please provide the details on both of these drives and likely the answer is there in rpm speeds, green power settings and the like?

Sorry, Maybe I should have been a little more clear. The drives are both physically the same hard drive. H is pointed to a subdirectory of K more of a shortcut than anything else. When I mapped L it is the exact drive as K just with different name. In fact I use the same batch code to connect them both, I just change the letter in the code before running it.

Thanks for the help and quick response.

I'll differ to others with a wheelhouse in networked drives. I was hoping that they were different drives.
