Windows 7: win 7 libraries are slow

win 7 libraries are slow

I like using Win 7 libraries, but these libraries are kind of slow. I don't know why but if I open a folder directly from the explorer, the files in that folder appears faster in the window than if I open the library including that folder. For example, if I open E:\music, the files in the folder instantly appear in the window. But if I open Win 7 music library, the files in E:\music doesn't appear in the window for about 10 seconds, as if it's looking for what files are in that folder, and then they appear. Is there a problem or is it the way the libraries are?

I would guess this is because the library is not a file, but essentially a set search. It contains the LOCATIONS of the folders, and would have to retrieve it each time.

I COULD be wrong though.
