Low perfomance on shared folders

Description (last modified by aeichner) (diff)

In the new VirtualBox version (2.1.4) with Guest Additions 2.1.4 under a Windows XP SP 3 guest OS and a Windows XP SP 2 host OS, continues happening the issue of share folders performance, the performance of these is very slow.

It's supposed that shared folders should have a similar performance as local folders in the guest. However there is a huge performance difference between them, local folders are fast as they are supposed, but shared folders are very slow compared with them.

I have had the same issue with all guest addition versions I have tried before and after version 2.0.6. However, there is something special about version 2.0.6 of the guest additions because it works perfectly on my machine with no slowdowns. I would be interested to know what happens if you try version 2.0.6 of the guest additions (I have been running that version of the guest additions under all the 2.1.x series versions of VirtualBox without any issues).
