I have two machines running Windows 7 Enterprise, one of which has a shared folder. I open it on startup using a batch file that contains the following command:
net use \\myip\share /user:username password
Everything is fine and I can browse the share quickly; everybody is happy.
However when I open an XLS file in the shared folder on the remote computer, it takes a couple of minutes to open - meanwhile the green progress bar on the window's path location slowly fills up.
How can I speed up the process?
No strange antivirus or other software are installed.
