    Office 2007 and Folder Redirection

    We have setup our students to have the Documents folder redirected to their home folder located on the server. When in any of the Office 2007 programs and the student attempts to open their file in their Documents folder they see a dialog box that says Connecting with a location of where it's trying to connect. My question is why does this happen only in the Office Suite? They can pull up their Documents folder from Paint, Notepad, Internet Explorer, etc. without seeing that message. Also, once it has been opened once it will open quickly (as expected) each time after until the Office program bing used is closed and reopened.

    There's something about SMB2 that Office 2007/2010 doesn't like. Just implemented the fix myself this week though yet to get feedback. I wasn't getting a dialog box like you, it was just taking an unreasonably long time.

    Office 2007 and Windows 7 Slow saving file to the network

    I have a single Windows 7 computer with the exact problem. The data is stored on a Windows 2008 server. I looked at the solution posted above but it did not resolve this problem for me.
