Why in Windows 7 does it take so much longer to MOVE a folder from one place to another on the same disk?  With XP it was instant. I know how the file move works with the FAT and all.

This goes along with slow file copies, etc. What is going on?

If I move a folder with sub-folders, you can actually watch each of the sub-folders disappear as it is moved. WAYYY slow.
