Hi

is it just me, or is the performance over LAN not really that good on W8?

sure.. copying and moving files is fine, but browsing images and folders etc. via network drives/folders is really not that good... W7 was much better..

What can be causing this? I assume that W8 has actually increased the network performance so what I am seeing seems strange..

Any suggestions?

Maybe Windows 8 needs to rebuild its thumbnail cache for the network drives in question ?
