Consider the following scenario:

  • You have a network share that is hosted on a computer that is running Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2 in a network environment.
  • You map a drive to the network share on a client computer that is running Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008.
  • You open some applications to query the extended attributes of the files on the network share.
  • You open Windows Explorer and then click the mapped drive to browse the files.

In this scenario, Windows Explorer stops responding for about 35 seconds.
