WIN 2k hanging before saving

By bawadod ·
I have almost 15 workstations with Windows 2000 operating system. Every time I try to save as any document or file the Pc hangs for three to four minutes then comes back to normal. It might be because I have a lot of network drives. any Idea.

WIN 2k hanging before saving

by Poettone In reply to WIN 2k hanging before sav ...

I have few questions,

1. Do you have a server?
2. Is it saving too the local drive only?
3. Are you running Tcp/Ip?
4. What are the permissions set for on each machine?
5. Does this happen in all Programs ie Word, Excel, Power Point, etc?
6.What is your network topology?

The only thing I could suggest is to test a simple cut and paste from drive to drive and check performance on this. It could be broadcast, it could be settings in win2k, it could be low grade Nic cards. I would alsoattempt a save from a win9x machine if available to rule out most of the possibilities. Good Luck
