Saving InDesign files to a network location seems to take an extremely long time during which I am unable to do anything else inside InDesign.
I know that this has been an issue for me for at least 2 weeks (since March 3, 2014, possibly earlier). I am not certain whether I have updated InDesign since then, but have consistently been experiencing this same problem.
Today I ran some tests (all using the same ~20MB file).
Save from InDesign to network location: 12 seconds
Save from InDesign to desktop: <2 seconds
Copy file (in Windows Explorer) from desktop to network: <2 seconds
Copy file from network to desktop: <2 seconds
I know I can work on the file locally and copy my saved versions out at the end of the day, but this was not necessary before, and I don't know what changed to make this take so much longer than it used to.
Current system configuration: InDesign 9.2 x64 running on a Win 7 Pro 64-bit with 16GB RAM and a Xeon 3.6GHz processor.
Is anyone else experiencing this? Any ideas on how to resolve?
Sure it's not just a server time sync problem related to the change to Daylight Savings Time?
Daylight savings time started on the 9th, right? I'm not sure about what a "server time sync problem" would be, but since my problem started before the DST switch, it doesn't seem that this could be the cause.
Also, since I am able to copy to and from the server outside of InDesign without any problems, doesn't this indicate the server and my computer are communicating just fine?
Thank you for your assistance!
