I just chanced jobs and my Find and Replace is painfully slow. When I search the entire current site first it counts the files, looks through 20,000, finds 8,000 then searches them. I've tried to turn on cloaking to reduce the scope of the search, unsuccessfully.
Locating all the instances of a piece of code or text is necessary as I learn the structure of the site (which appears to be huge maybe a 1,000,000 lines of code).
My last position had a similar size site but the Find & Replace was approximately 8 times faster.
Any tips or suggestions would be appreciated.
