    File Share server access very slow


    Hello all,

    Since a week ago my File Share server has been slow to open the "root" folder. Opening a folder via the path in the explorer is immediate.
    Anyone with this problem?
    This only happens with Windows 10, when I try to access File Share through a Windows Server, it's immediate/normal.

    Notes:

    My "corporate" antivirus is Kaspersky, I have already uninstalled it from the server and stopped on my computer. It didn't.

    PC: Kaspersky Endpoint Security 11.5.0.590
    Server: Kaspersky 11 for Windows Server (v11.0.0.480)
    OS: Windows 10 20H2 (Build 19042.867) with CU 2021-03

    Issue:





    Thank you

    :)

  2. File deleted on share, hosting server space unadjusted

    Hello,

    I have a situation where I was running through some tasks for a project I undertook for audit purposes.

    What happened was I created a VHD on a share and this file was pretty big (25GB). I then accessed the share from my local work PC to test that I could mount the VHD while I was accessing it from a share. A few complaints later, the direction moves to me deleting said VHD. I still had the share mapped to my session and I had the disk unmounted. I did the "permanent delete" option from the ribbon via File Explorer and it seemed to pass on just fine without error.

    Next, I decided to check that the space had been freed on the server hosting the share. To my astonishment, it did not free up the space I had taken.

    I need to know why this did not go as expected and more importantly, I need to know how I can resolve this.

    Systems involved:

    • Windows Server 2008 R2 w/ File Server role and hosts multiple shares
    • Windows 10 Pro (1803) PC

    Tidbit:
    • I cannot restart the file server for reasons related to UPTIME.
    • I checked Shares>Open Files from Computer Management and didn't see anything for the share even after deactivating the share
    • I was the only user who could access this share at the time and I am a domain admin

    TIA

    Cannot access shared network drive


    Personally, I wouldnt use Everyone. If anyone hacks into you, they have full access to everything and can demolish everything on your raid. I would rather set up accounts and access separately for each person. That way, I know who did all that damage. In the end with a little extra work, I feel more secure by using Authenticated Users.


    If this helps.
    step 1 create non-microsoft account and without email and address without admin rights
    step 2 share a drive or folder to specific user account (if Everyone is listed, remove it)
    step 3 set security > add Authenticated Users (if more than 1 account) or add specific users
    step 3a remove Everyone from list
    step 3b uncheck full control and write for all items listed except SYSTEM and Admin account.
    step 4 right click Start > Computer Management > System Tools > Shared Folders > Shares ... to verify settings and change anything else. You can also see the number of connections to each share here.
