Explorer shows my R:\ "drive" and subdirs without delay, even though some dirs point to offline resources. Selecting such a dir however makes Win XP Pro hang for about half a minute.
So I make sure I stay clear of those.
When FileZilla's shows R:\ (on startup) it freezes the system right away. The dirs are probably queried in a way that needs them to be opened.
Can querying the local folder be done without opening the subfolders?
I realize that having the offline dirs removed would solve my problem - but I'm not authorized.
I also realize that ticket 3003 (feature req. prio: low) would solve the problem. But asynchronous folder display is very hard indeed. It was the one promise that made me try Vista. No luck, even the MS wizs can't do it, apparently.
