Hi there, I hope someone can help as I'm in a world of PC users and IT are struggling to care about the one Mac that is connected to their network. I am connected to 2 separate networks which run through the company's firewall etc. I am working primarily from a folder that is stored on a computer in another state. This volume is using 959.77 GB and has 40.09 GB available. Previewing images from this volume in finder takes between 2 and 5 minutes. Placing images into InDesign from this volume takes between 5 and 10 minutes, regardless of the size of the image. Specs are : iMac Processor 3.4 GHz Intel Core i7 Memory 8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3 Graphics NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680MX 2048 MB Software OS X 10.8.5 (12F45) The computer itself is 6 months old and everything else is running fine. If anyone has any clues as to why Finder is struggling with files please let me know, any help is greatly appreciated!
