D: drive slow when sorting...
Here is a weird one.. I normally can figure these things out.. but this one has me
a little bit stumped.
When I try to sort a directory with a bunch of files it takes forever!
I have a similar E: drive with a comparable amount of files and it's almost instant.
So I figure that maybe the disk is going bad. So I get another disk and copy all my files from the d: drive to the new drive. Then I reassign the old drive to "G:" and the new drive (call it swap) back to "D:"
now the old drive (which is now "G:") sorts almost instantaneously and the new swap drive "D:" agains take forever to sort! Now if I rename D: to "F:".. The sort is instantaneously!
There is something with having the drive called "d:" which is screwing something up!
What am I missing? Indexing is checked for all drives.
