On our Windows 2000 Server DC,we have a folder on the hard drive that holds 26,000 '.wav' sound files. Between 10k and 6MB in size.
When I click on the directory in explorer, explorer freezes for 20 seconds before the contents of the directory are listed.
This can be inconvenient at times. I wonder if windows is looking up bitrates, etc for the wav files before listing the directory.
Is there a way to speed up the directory listing?
