    You havent got the file server using an IP address that is also used for something else? I know it sounds silly but I did this so speak from experience!! Worth a check.

    It isn't the antivirus scanning everything before allowing it to be saved on the server, is it?

    Hey no there is no IP address conflict and this might sound real bad but at the moment I'm in the process of sorting our our Anti Virus as we don't have any yet the school never has!!

    Well, from what you are saying at least you might have narrowed it down to Office/network.

    Do you have any ADM for Office GPO's?

    What about this:

    "Ok I tried this by mapping a new drive to 1 folder up and saved a bunch of times with no issues.. I'm not sure why this "fixes" the issues though. The original folder is a remapped "my documents" folder via GPO that maps to a folder shared as \\homedirs\username\my documents I manually mapped a share to \\homedirs\username which seems to save in a normal fashion. The same share (first one) was working fine before the upgrade to 2010."

    I know you said "all" shares, but did you mean all H:\ drives? Is there any redirected MyDocs to H:\ stuff going on?

    Sometimes a disconnected network drive (not always the one you are saving to either) can give these symptoms, also DNS resolution can.

    Are the drives mapped via servername or IP?
    Is the issue happening saving to a local drive?
    Does the issue happen saving to a UNC?

    Check its not trying to save to Skydrive by default first which might be blocked in some way.

    Just to keep you all in the loop I eventually found a fix to this I went on my file server and add a REG_DWORD entry named Smb2 with a value of 0 to HKLM\System\Current Control Set\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters then I rebooted the server and ta-dahhhh!a

    We had a similar issue to this last year.

    I am assuming your PCs are Windows 7?

    If so, it may be the Win 7 autotuning thing thats causing the issue. You can disable that quite easily.

    We run this command in a PC startup script and it seemed to fix the problem:

    netsh interface tcp set global autotuning=disabled

    Might be worth a try?

    Cheers - Andrew

    I'd be interested as to where you found the 'fix' and what it actually fixes, as it would appear it isn't recommended... In fact it would appear that SMB2 is actually for improving things. Do you think there was a specific part of it that didn't work well within your network. I guess if it works don't knock it, but I like to know the why...

    How to enable and disable SMBv1, SMBv2, and SMBv3 in Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows 8, and Windows Server 2012

    See, this is why I asked if it was 2012.

    I have had issues when testing 2012, with SMB v3 being a steaming turd and slow with office files. It managed to kill an mdb completely. I can't say I'm terribly impressed with 2012/R2

    @Koldov after doing some long hours researching into this I found an article online explaining how SMB2 and SMB3 can apparently cause havoc as it's very chatty and likes to redirect shares all over the place for no logical reason. These were sorted in Windows Updates apparently but I couldn't find the update anywhere! Anyway disabled it and it's worked ever since with not a single issue with anything... In fact it's been running like a dream. I was also in the expectation it's supposed to help but as you say... I'm not going to enable it again just because there's some apparent data out there which suggests it's good because after disabling it all I've found is everything works better and faster!
