So, back when I moved to google cloud, I had the server running on windows 10. When I moved back to this hardware I decided to install a new ssd along with a new install of Windows Server. When I moved to this newly installed system, there seemed to be an unnatural amount of lag. Not sure exactly what was causing it, but today I put that old SSD back in with Windows 10 and copied over the server and world files and fired it up.
It’s running like it was before the move to google cloud now.
This could be a driver issue, or the fact that windows server includes a ton of other services that I don’t ever intend to actually use. Not sure exactly what was causing the slowness, but it seems to have been resolved.
Time will tell, but this issue was noticeable almost right away, and I have not yet experienced it myself.
