    When files are saved from one workstation to a network share for the user, it takes several minutes for the file to be “discovered” by Office apps. I can navigate to the location with Explorer and the files are there, yet it can take up to 10 minutes for Excel to see the file.

    The Workstation is a Windows 7 Professional machine with a factory install from HP.
    The server is a 2008 R2 server used as a file server.
    The file is a plain text CSV file that is exported from a vendors software.
    The version of Office used is 2007.

    I want to know what is causing this but I am not finding an answer on search engines.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I was just reminded that when the network scanner is used that it takes a long time for the scanned files to appear in Explorer.
    I am not sure if this is related or a different issue.
