  • Home directory disconnect causes Windows Explorer to freeze

    Hello,
    First off I am not sure if I am posting this in the correct forum. I hope I am and I am sorry if I am not....
    Each domain computer (Windows 7, XP) points to a Windows Server 2012 for their home directory documents etc. I have had a couple of instances where that server locked up for some reason (which I think I fixed). When that has happened it causes all the domain computers to function very slowly and won't allow a user to even open a local document on their desktop. Well it does allow them but it takes forever to open. Any ideas what might be causing that? The home directory is mapped through a GPO and they also have a 3-4 shared drives mapped. I was thinking it might have something to do with indexing but I am not sure. Any help would be great.

    Thank you,
    Tony

      Your idea of indexing is possible - check the search service on the clients to see if they include the home drive (if you have relocated My Documents to it, very possibly). No other brilliant ideas from me,I'm afraid

        Tony414, this could be related to a permission issue. Is the frozen server also a DC?
        Cheers,
