Bad luck is I have to connect many times a day to a server, to a directory containing thousands and thousands of files, and the time taken to read the remote directory's contents is quite long. Subjectively, no more than ten or twenty seconds, but, well, I tend to get fixated on the small things breaking the work's flow ;)
In case there are various cases when remote reading may happen, here's what I do : choose one of the servers in memory, and the steps shown are : Searching for host... > Connecting to host... > Authenticating... > Using username "username"... > Authenticating with pre-entered password. > Authenticated. > Staring the session... > Reading remote directory...
Please, would it be possible to DEACTIVATE the reading of the remote directory's contents ? To force the program to remember past cache and not try to refresh it ?
From what I could see in my searches, I don't think it is possible, but, hey, I risk nothing in asking for a confirmation :)
Thanks a lot if you can reply to me,
