From my Windows 7 64bit workstation at my workplace I administer over a VPN connection tens of servers located at our data center.
Usually I work with Terminal Services but sometimes I will access remote files directly with my local Windows Explorer.
For example when I point my local Windows Explorer to a remote folder containing some 2500 xml files ranging in size from several Kb to over 100Mb, then it will list the contents but at every file change it shows a green progress bar behind the location bar which takes ages too complete, and the status bar says "Searching for items". This will often freeze the Explorer Interface. I think I've tried all the common suggested tweaks in Organize > Folder and Search Options > View.
What is Explorer doing and how can I tell it not to do it?
I had no such issues with my previous XP.
