7435[NTO] Re: HELP: 30 seconds to open txt file is killing me
- Aug 1, 2006Jeffery thanks for that fantastic question! Alec thank you for
googling it down (sometime I forget how much one can learn from
a simple search), it was worth more than a shot, because...
BAM!!! The files open just like that now!!! I followed the directions
in the link for "network drive mapping", and BAM!!! I'm able to open
files from both computers browsing through the newly created Network
Drives with no delay at all! The old method of using My Network
Places is still like pouring molasses.
I redid the "copy name" experiment you suggested, and you can see the
SHARED file path
\\V-central\my documents\DELUNA_verna\Working Files\Arts.txt
MAPPED file path
You are my heroes! This made all the difference in the world, and
will allow me to keep using the power of NTP for the massive project
I'm involved in!
I'm confident this solution will stick, because this time it isn't
just working by chance, but rather by using a method designed for
working in a networked environment.
Thank you, thank you, and thank you again!!!
48 messages to resolution since Dec, I guess that perseverance really
does pays off. Thank you all for your patience and input.
