JSI Tip 3427. Your client's window hangs when attempting to open a file on a Windows 2000 share?

When your client tries to open a file on a Windows 2000 share, the window in which they are viewing the file list may hang for a several seconds, or even a few minutes?

If the file is encrypted, and the client did NOT encrypt the file, and the client is NOT a designated recovery agent, this condition will occur.

You should NOT post encrypted files on 'public' shares.
