    Is it true that if you map a network drive (or several) on a p2p network that this will slow down your computer or others on the network?

    Shouldn't be that big of a load on them unless you are transferring super large gigabyte files.

    It will slow down booting as the mapping is reestablished if you configure them as persistent mappings.
