Whenever I access, with my local Windows 7 explorer in details view, a remote share on our production servers containing our own xml log files, the location bar turns into a green progress bar that takes many minutes to complete while the status bar states "Searching for items". During that time explorer becomes very unresponsive at sorting when I click on a column header.
This particular folder simply contains some 1.8GB in 2388 xml and txt log files.
I did have the column "File version" showing, but removing it doesn't help.
I really don't understand wtf explorer thinks it's doing, because it is already showing all the info I need. Name, Date modified, Type and Size. Nothing else. So what's it doing?
I have tried every option I can think of in Explorer's Folder Options - View properties tab.
