I have a quite small database put on my companies network shared drives.
The database is split into two files. The connection is set to IPADRESS\FILEPATH.

I have huge problems that the database is very very slow when users works in it.
I have searched for a long time for an answer to this, but not been able to find any solution.

If i take the database offline, reconnect the two files localy on my computer it is lightning fast. But as soon as i put it back on the network drive it is slow again.

I have contacted out companies IT department and asked them. They say that they have tested the network and it is fast and no bottlenecks in transfeering files on the network. They dont really care about my issues so i cant get them to be very motivated about this.

Is there anything i can do?
Running a test on my computer i get 80mbit download and 8mbit upload speed on the internet.
Dont know how to test write/read speed on a network folder.

After nagging on our IT department for some time i finaly got a new location on another server to try and use.
Got a new folder today, so i placed my backend on that folder and re-linked the frontend´s.

And look at that, the database improved in speed very much.
Something with our network was the error...
Will monitor this for a week and see if the speed stays!
