  • Windows Explorer constantly searching on network drives

    Hi guys

    Getting this on a mapped network drive (on server 2003), on every client (windows XP).

    Basically if you try to create a new file/folder it won't appear and it'll state "searching for items" in the status bar. It'll show up after 20-30 seconds, but sometimes it'll look like it's crashed out. It ONLY occurs in the root of the mapped drive. If I go to a sub folder it's fine.

    I've tried disabled "automatically search for folders and files" on the XP machines, i've also tried the registry fix as seen here:

    I've tried adding an additional share, mapping it to another letter and unsharing / resharing the folder with no luck.

    Any ideas?

    To add, if I open a network drive without an issue I get very little network traffic.

    When I'm opening the network drive with an issue I'm getting about 100kB/s both ways constantly....

      To add, getting LOADS of these in wireshark:

      3975 70.694431 192.168.1.3 192.168.1.69 SMB Trans2 Response, QUERY_PATH_INFO, Error: STATUS_OBJECT_NAME_INVALID

      .69 being my workstation and 1.3 being the DC with the file share.

      I've also noticed the ntfs perms are way off, alot of files were copied over from DC to DC yesterday, there are duplicates of the same ACLs with with inherited / non inherited status.

      Looks like NTFS perms are to blame?
