Have you considered putting them in source control? That way you can have them all locally and still keep them safe!

All of our code AND datasheets containing our test are source controlled. Our automation developers just update when they are ready to test... and our build machine builds the projects and the test machines just pick them up from there.

Just an update on this particular item:

Updating to 4.0.4 did not address the binding speed but moving all of the files locally has fixed the problem.
