Freezing when accessing network folders

Post by sha.s » 2020 Jun 27, 22:27

My xplorer2 has been momentarily freezing, like 8-10 seconds whenever I want to open up a mapped network drive's folder. I don't recall having this issue; started within the past year.

Is there a setting to turn off reading the folder when you click on a network drive? Revisiting the same folder during the same x2 session does not have any freezing.

Any suggestions appreciated.

Thank you,

Sha

do you have the "fast network" option checked? See TOOLS > OPTIONS menu, Advanced property page

if that option is ticked, there's not much else to do. The first time a network is accessed, things get slow. I suppose if you access the same resource with windows explorer (the first time), it should also be slow (?)
