Windows 7: Some folders take to long time to "load".

03 Aug 2010   #1

Windows 7 64bit
Some folders take to long time to "load".

Greetings, I have an issue which been bugging me for quite some time. Some folders on my PC takes to long time to load before they can function properly (as in sorting files by date/name, search, or even to see the files). What I see is sometimes empty folder with the green bar slowly "loading" in the folder address field.

The current folder I am having the issue with is the folder for Firefox downloads. Any ideas on how to fix this issue? I have approx 100 files in there, not to much.

Long story short- Explorer often takes to long time to load a particular folder which is default location for firefox downloads, or can't load it at all.

I solved slow loading by switching optimizing folder from pictures (doh) to documents, sorry for the spam x)
