    vista ultimate slow slow network with windows 2000 pro

    My file server is running Windows 2000 Pro. Since I moved
    from Windows XP to Windows Vista, my writing files to the
    file server has gotten very slow. It seems that any file above
    a megabyte or so requires several seconds to write. I have
    checked the cpu load when I am writing to the file server
    and it is just about zero.

    We use a workgroup with mounted drives across our gigbit
    network.

    Does anyone have a clue what is going on here ?

    I do not have this problem with our other file server running
    Windows XP Pro.

    Thanks,
    Lynn McGuire

    XP Pro help ?

    I fixed the problem by upgrading the file server from Windows 2000
    Pro to Windows XP Pro. Life is now good ! For me, that is.

    Thanks,
