I've got a pretty beefy Mac Pro on my desk, and I've used it in Boot Camp mode (with Windows XP) for most of its life.
Every time I delete a file, Explorer hangs for about a minute. Doesn't matter if it's a small file or a big file (mostly I notice when I'm deleting a wayward shortcut on the desktop) but deletes always take way longer than it makes sense for them to.
What does that indicate? Boot Camp partition issues? Anti-virus software making absolutely sure that the file is properly deleted? TortoiseSVN checking that the deleted files weren't part of some repository? Windows Indexer being overzealous?
Any ideas would be appreciated. (And they'll be easy to test.)
