I had lots of weird problems using Protel99 files on network drives.  I found that 
using DDB format (one big .ddb file for your whole project) worked better than 
'filesystem' project format option (lots of actual .sch files stored in actual 
subfolders).  No idea why the difference though.

I'm having a few probs with my setup here & just wanted to bounce the 
symptoms off you for any suggestions I could follow up on.

I am running 99SEsp6 & XP & am connected to a network.

History:
I had "My Documents" mapped to the H: drive (on a server) instead of my 
local machine for safety sake (& making backups simple). The problem 
with that is there is often some sort of lag when I save a (say 3meg) 
Protel database. Instead of taking <1sec, like when I save on my local 
disk, it *sometimes* takes nearly 60seconds onto the H drive. Sometimes 
it has been almost instantaneous. This doesn't seem to be related to 
network traffic, more like waiting for something to timeout, as I can 
send a 10meg file to & from the same H drive & it does that smartly.

I only have delay probs with Protel saving & no other program.

Can anyone give a hint of what might be happening here? Have you seen 
anything like this?

Dom
