Yes and yes... The FS is dog slow. These are first-time adds to SVN.
It seems to add files in bursts, then hang for several minutes (cleaning
up pagefile space?) How would I go about finding logs/transcripts?

Windows filesystems often drag their feet on directories containing so
many files. The more files there, the slower access to those files
becomes. If the smallest directory he has contains ~47,000 files, I'm
guessing that the filesystem is going to be quite slow.
