    Question File Server Delay

    Hi folks,

    I've noticed a curious issue when saving files onto our 2008 R2 file server (which runs as a VM on Hyper-V).

    Case in point today was saving files from a laptop onto a share on this file server. The laptop was side-by-side with a desktop, and a staff member then wanted to access the files from this share... except they didn't show. I refreshed Explorer, still no files. Several minutes later they appeared, but I was surprised there was such a lag.

    Anyone know why this is?

    TIA

    have you got offline files enabled on the laptop? if the laptop thought it wasn;t connected to the network it would have saved the file in its local cache and would sync it to the server when it was reconnected to the network

    No, it's not enabled. Next time this happens I'll check the server as quickly as I can, to see if that shows the files. It's almost as if a refresh on the second computer isn't forcing a refresh and is checking a cache instead.
