Topic "WinSCP takes a very long time to exit a directory with lots of files"

Author Message


I understand that it takes a long time to enter a directory with lots of files, but what I can't understand is why it takes about the same amount of time to exit that directory to a parent directory. I only see this on SSH, I didn't test this on ftp. Can you do something about this? By "lots of files" I mean "100000+"

It's probably related to my other bug report, I suspect that going to parent directory forces WinSCP to refresh current directory (which is a really stupid thing to do...)
