SharePoint search not working and backups taking too long? SharePoint, Microsoft’s multi-functional collaboration software, is used to increase efficiency and productivity by centralizing information and applications, including:
- Documents, such as client deliverables and reports
- Project schedules and task lists
- Media, such as training videos
- Enterprise search
However, due to the growth of usage rates within organizations, SharePoint’s popularity is inevitably slowing down performance due to the significant I/O of all the resource-intensive activities that take place on it, especially that of search and backup times, to the point it is becoming less efficient and more of a drain on system resources. But there is a way to reverse this trend.
