When saving files using the Save File As wizard, the underlying code is trying to connect to disconnected network drives. This results in extremely poor performance when using a slow network connection.

This behavior has been confirmed by many people, but I could not find a Connect item on it.

Every other application does NOT try to access disconnected network drives. Please fix this.

Hi Paul,

Thanks for reporting this issue.

We are sorry that you are experiencing this performance issue. SSMS 2008 SP1 uses Visual Studio 2005 Shell and we leverage File Save functionality provided to us by Shell.
This behavior is not directly controlled by us.

I have found related msdn connect issue which was logged against Visual Studio Shell team.
(Though this issue is reported for 2008 Shell, the same applies for Visal studio 2005 Shell)

I am going to close this issue as Won't Fix for now, if you have any concerns please feel free to re-open this issue.
