"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

How large are the log files in the folder? - can you archive older logs?

AV scanning the logs? - try excluding the folder from AV scans.
Qlemo"Batchelor", Developer and EE Topic AdvisorCommented:
If the folder view opens slowly, it is probably because of the amount of files it contains (the file sizes are irrelevant). Above of around 2000 files the effect is significant. Deleting, moving elsewhere, or zipping together a large bunch of the files should help.
