Windows 7: w7 64 bits slow to arrange files by date

03 Dec 2009   #1

windows 7 built 7100
w7 64 bits slow to arrange files by date

Well I don't know why but it seems my windows is not adding to indexed file the date propriet.... so everytime i want to sort my video library (around 8000 files) it takes me almost 25 minutes to get the date propriets populated.

I moved from w7 32 bits 2 months ago an I really don't remember having to wait for that.

I also check the indexing options and seems it's set to index properties.

I'm currently runnin an i750 wit 4 gb ram, any clues for why this is goin on?
