Hi All, I just wanted to report a bug and a work around for issues with Windows XP, ESET Endpoint Antivirus 5.0.2122.1 and users logging with folder redirection. For some reason, any user who logs in with folder redirection suffers from extreme performance issues whenever files are being synchronized to between Folder Redirection and offline files. Browsing the redirected folder with Windows explorer almost always locks up the computer for brief periods. Steps to reproduce: 1) Take any XP computer in a domain setup. 2) Have a group policy for users accounts to redirect My Documents folder to a network drive 3) Login with user that has several documents stored in the My Documents folder 4) Make sure offline files is enabled Performance impact is noticed when: - Offline files attempts to synchronize redirected my documents folder - User attempts to browser my documents folder Please note that the performance impact does not affect users with local profiles stored on the computer, only users that have roaming profiles and offline files are enabled. Work around: - Setup an exclude for C:\Windows\CSC\*.* - I'm assuming disabling offline files will have the same impact, but I have not tested this. The performance impact does not exist for Windows Vista or Windows 7 users. We do not have any Windows 2000 workstations in our office, but there's a possibility since that the CSC would work the same way in 2000 that it does in XP that they too would be impacted.
