Windows 7: The Long Green Bar When Accessing A Homegroup Folder

The Long Green Bar When Accessing A Homegroup Folder

Hi All,

Laptop connected to my home network. Network folder resides on my media server, shared thru the Homegroup.

Whenever I go to access the network folder, I recieve the Long Green Bar in the address bar. It takes like 30mins to complete.

If I close the window and re-open it even 10 seconds later, it takes another 30mins for the Long reen Bar to finish.

I think my laptop may be trying to index or reindex the share every time. Attached is a snip of the behavior.

Anyone ever seen this behavior and if so, is there a way to turn it off?

Thx, hopefully this thread will help someone else out also.
