Stalls for 3-4 sec
« on: December 15, 2005, 11:23:16 PM »
Hello.

I'm an avid user of F&R Robot. Great software.

I realized today that when search in the "recent" folder is enabled, it slows things down -- it could also be a because of specific file in the recent folder or something else, I Don't know.

More specifically, when I wanted to start the calculator and used the down arrow to immediately select the calculator, F&RR froze for about 3-4 sec. and then resumed. Like I said, the "recent" folder (C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Recent) did it... when I removed it, it was okay. Putting it back (in the "Search Folder" area) recaused the problem.

Thought I'd share that...
 
P.S. :Not that many files in the recent folder (around 30). I've got a P4 1.8Ghz, 512mb ram.

i think i know the cause of this - it is likely related to an item being in the recent folder that refers to a network resource.  this causes a delay.  it will be fixed in the next release which will be in january.

Yes, that might be it! That's why I've also removed the "My Network places" folder from the "search folder" area.

Thank you for your great work.
