    I have a Dell PowerEdge server running SBS 2008, serving an office of 15-20 clients, of various spec s running windows XP.

    I have recently and suddenly noticed a dramatic slowdown in the speed at which files are copied from the company shared network drive (v: ) to a client machine. File transfer isn’t the main cause for headaches tho, users of access databases are having some very slow running queries and this is causing a serious dip in productivity.

    I tested this by timing the transfer of a 95Mb file from the v drive to my desktop and comparing it to a shared folded (A: ) on another client. The V drive took about 147 seconds, the A drive about 24 sec!

    So I’m stumped now as to how I can troubleshoot this further. I’ve run chkdsk on the server, with no errors. Suggestions please for how I could get to the bottom of this!
