Poor performance while opening folder - vista Sp2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

     

    Problem: I created a folder-MOVIES, which has movies, around 170 movies(folders only one level folders). After adding few new movie folder, opening of MOVIE folder takes 2min, this is true also for refreshing activity. So i create new folders outside MOVIE folder and moved all files. 

    Even after moving all files from MOVIE folder, opening of empty folder takes same time. Any one can help here to understand why and the solution for the same.

    I think this is because of more entries in the folder file, i am not sure, just guessing

     

    thanks in advance for time

     

    Regards,

    KC

  • The issue is that windows is trying to create thumbnails. Change the view to details and it will be faster.

  • Hi KC,

    I suggest clear and reset the thumbnail cache to resolve the issue:

    Open Disk Cleanup.
    Check the Thumbnails box and click on OK
    Click on the Delete Files button.
    Click on the Delete Files button.
    Disk Cleanup will now clear the thumbnail cache and close.

    Hope it helps.
