Folders loading issue

Post by ryan_linux08 » Tue May 08, 2018 9:17 am

We are facing folders loading issue on Linux mint 18.3 Cinnamon edition where one folder contains minimum 15000 sub folders.

Please provide solution to improve loading speed.

As a last resort -

It might help to pre-load the folders' meta-data into RAM. This is very fast when the folders don't have to be displayed at the same time. It uses hard-links, so all the data has to be part of the same EXT file system...
cd && x=".$(date)" && mkdir "$x" && cp -lr * "$x/" && rm -r "$x"
