Recently Notepad++ seems to be very slow when dealing with files that are located on a network share.
I am editing small files (e.g. web.config) and it is slow to:
- Initially open a file on a network share.
- Switch tabs back to a file on a network share.
- Switch back to notepad++ after using another application.
My guess is when switching tabs back to a network file it tries to check if someone else has modified the file (I could live with turning this off and it could check on save).
I am on a "fast" local network and have only noticed this problem recently.
My local PC is Windows 7 Enterprise and the servers are Windows Server 2003 and 2008.
