Windows 7/slow Windows 7 file indexing?
My Dell Inspiron 620 computer is about a year old, 3 GHZ processor and 8 GM Ram, should not have any speed issues.
However, when I navigate to folders that have a lot of files (over 1000), it takes a around a minute to index and sort them (the green bar runs from left to right as it's working) for the first time during a work session. After that it's immediate.
Is this normal? Other than creating subfolders, is there any fix you know of?
Yes this is normal. I have three fairly decent computers running Windows 7 and everyone of them and every one I have worked on does the same thing.
The best thing that you can do is keep your hard drive defragmented. I use defraggler which can be downloaded here http://www.piriform.com/defraggler
