I spent about 3 hours of my time sorting the files into subdirectories at work this morning. Each program has three files (Program, graphic, CAP or interface) and even putting 50-100 files in a directory it has a 20 second lag. That would be so many sub-sub-subdirectories that I think it would be confusing. I'm not the only one running this.
I checked out that thread, thanks Mini-Max. It seems to be the mapped network drive more than the number of files. I already suggested having the program live on the hard drive and just backing up daily automatically and the IS supervisor didn't like the idea.
