Speeding up Copying a directory with 10 million files inside.
Posted on 2012-04-08
I have a directory which contains 10 million files where each file have a size of 1 KB.
So, the directory is not big, but it contains huge number of files.
I want to integrate this folder in my setup package, when doing it, the setup time increases alot due to the huge number of files inside it.
My friend suggested me to make it a zip file. This method worked prefect in decreasing setup time. However after setup, I run a C# software to extract this directory.
This extraction, takes aloooooooooooot time too.
Any idea on how to fix that?
Thx in advanced experts
