I have been using the Remote Systems Explorer for a few weeks. Other than the occasional lost connections, it seems to work pretty well. I can edit/save files, and the process happens quickly.

Now, I am trying to use a local project with files linked from the same remote connection I was using with RSE. However, the opening/saving of the file is horrendously slow, lags my Eclipse, and often even crashes. I was thinking the saving process should be the same for the remote file in the local project as it would be through the RSE. At this point, I am basically forced to edit through the RSE.

Any thoughts as to what is causing this?

Hi,

Depending on the type of project and files you're working with, there may be
a lot of things going on when you open and/or save a file. It's possible
that other project resources need to be accessed (multiple times in some
cases) during opening, saving and other operations. When the resources are
local, this sort of file I/O isn't noticeable while, when they are remote
but exposed via EFS, such operations can lag. Since the file accesss is
driven from outside of RSE (i.e. Platform and project-specific tooling), I
don't think there is a lot RSE can do to help here.

Which RSE version are you using? There was a bug a while back that did help
with this a bit:
