I had hoped to get out for a walk before any thunderstorms, and I think
I'll do that now because any copying/moving/deleting of files on zoo is
taking a long, long time. Is it just me?
I'm testing on 2 workstations, one of which is straight off the truck
from Dell (I think I installed Office and putty, but that's about all).
I am working with a couple of folders containing several thousand small
image files amounting to 1 to 3 MB total. Trying to copy to \\zoofiles
(both public_html share and my home share) takes awhile. Even deleting
takes several minutes. Windows Explorer is currently stuck
"calculating" how long it is going to take to delete one of these folders.
But nevermind copy/move/delete, it took about 2 minutes before I could
even view the contents of one folder in my home directory. Part of this
might possibly be Forefront doing some laborious virus scanning like
NOD32 used to do? I'm spending a lot of time watching green "progress"
bars drift slowly across the top of Windows Explorer these days.
I've been talking with SAA about this but thought I would see if anyone
else is experiencing the same sort of difficulty.
