Windows 7: Excel Saving to network drives takes over 5 minutes for any size file

03 May 2012   #1

Windows 7 Professional x64
Excel Saving to network drives takes over 5 minutes for any size file

My excel takes minutes, up to 5 or more, to save to a server.
The file size is irrelevant, and windows explorer shows not responding. . .

What am i missing for services that keeps network connections active or
at least able to be opened in less than 5 minutes.

Closing a file without changes caused the same issue.

thanks in advance

and did not have lower level encryption turned on. . .
