    Hello,

    In my office we have 5 macs on our desktops (all different, this one's a mac pro, there's a G4, a couple of eMacs and an Intel iMac), all connected to a G4 server and sharing data on a network hard disk.

    Everything works fine except that in the last couple of weeks a problem has arisen whereby when you click a folder on a network drive to view it in the finder, there is a pause before the contents are shown, of between 5-10 seconds.

    This doesn't sound much and it doesn't happen every time you select a folder, but if you're browsing through a lot of files it gets very boring indeed.

    Anyone have any idea what the problem might be? Could a permissions repair help perhaps?

    Thanks for your help

    This more a general mac software question – not a Mac Pro one, so you may get better answers in the Mac Applications forum.

    Ok thanks, I wasn't sure which section to put it in. I'll re-post this in applications.
