For a long time now, I've used underscore to start some folder names
e.g.
_Documentation

I'm currently having trouble with two apps Textmaker 2008 and Directory Opus 8
They both take an age to open either files or folders

  • Textmaker takes 40 seconds to open a file from in one of these folders via Win.Explorer or Dir.Opus
  • Dir.Opus also takes an age to open one of these folders via context menu (Explore or Open) - Win.Explorer doesnt have this problem

Any ideas ? 
I guess I could try a restart ...
