    Slow Shared Folders

    muirhejs Novice








      Host: Windows Vista Home Premium, SP1 (Intel Core 2 Quad CPU, 2.4GHz, 3GB RAM)

      Guest: Windows XP SP2 (1 processor, 256 MB RAM)



      Network and overall performance with the guest is fine.



      Problem Statement:



      Accessing a shared folder on the host from within the guest is extremely slow.   Copying files and other file operations is very slow as well.  Example: copying a 600K file takes about 20 seconds.



      Network connectivity out to the internet is fast (>=400KBps at times).  Overall speed of the guest is fine.



      Accessing the same shared folder from a different computer works fine.



      I've searched through the forums and can't seem to find anything.






      Any thoughts!?
