At work I have a nice new windows laptop with a speedy m2 drive.
We seem to have folder redirection (which I have only just learnt is a thing) set up on each PC, to our local server. I believe this is causing speed issues, by (a) wasting the speed of my m2 drive, and (b) causing hanging issues with Office (particularly when using the laptop out of the office).
I also think that in our circumstances folder redirection isnt necessary at all. We use Office 365, so emails are already backed up with Microsoft, and we use a CRM document management system that saves all documents created into our local server - so the only things saved locally on each PC should be personal stuff and local settings/preferences. We also have mapped network drives to save stuff too if we want.
SO - long story short - I think I want to ask our IT guy to remove the folder redirection, and my hope, is that this speeds up my PC (particularly word and outlook, but everything else too).
We are only a small office, and although everything is new, I suspect our server is fairly run of the mill, so may be a minor bottleneck.
Just wondering if you think I have the wrong end of the stick at all or if I have missed something?
