My office has multiple locations. Our server is in City A, a couple hundred miles away. I am in City B. We have a VPN connection set up in Windows 10 that I connect to which allows me to access network drives. Our VPN is super slow and when I move (not open or edit, just move) a file from one folder in the City A server to another folder on the City A server the transfer is painstakingly slow on the VPN. So when I move files over VPN does the transfer move the file temporarily from City A to my computer in City B, and then back to it's final location in a new folder on the City A server? Is that why it is so slow?
