Idea 9880 + samba mount = horrible performance

Anyone else experience super poor file syncing performance when idea has to go over samba to sync project files?

I'm running a VM Ware linux server on my windows host - and idea sits there 50/50% cpu with my samba process syncing all my project files for a good 40 minutes (500mb) .

any way to speed this up?

I have my long time solution for IDEA performance dealing with 600+mb project.  Don't use SAMBA share . I have to run my code remotely - and I tried NFS recently - and it's a 500% performance gain for me. Hot deploys take 3seconds from 30-40seconds - and file syncing is down to a minute from about 20-30 minutes.

just fyi if anyone else runs into this issue
