Slow file operations and cannot use ViceVersa

Posted: 06-16-2006, 10:52 PM
I'm seeing sporadic slow file operations, where it can take a move or delete
(to recycle bin) a couple minutes to complete. Any ideas what's going on?

Also, when I'm running ViceVersa to back up my files, sometimes it stalls
during initial file comparison (though it works after I wait a while), but
then it can freeze while attempting to delete files during sync. I have a
feeling that it has to do with adminstrator access (to delete the files), but
I'm running as administrator and no dialog pops up asking for adminstrator
privileges to delete files.

ViceVersa is extremely important to me as a backup solution, so I'd like to
fix these slow Explorer operations as quickly as possible.

Greetings. I know this might sound stupid but its true "ITS BETA" =)

So its slow due:
A) lots of debugging is running at background ALL THE TIME
B) drivers are not yet ready nor finished and optimized for vista
C) at this stage of BETA, code optimization is not done. Before RTM they
will start optimizing code to increase performance.

Depending your hardware setup, you can have 1-100x performance differences
just due drivers.

ITS BETA, it means its at testing stage to find bugs. Performance testing
doesnt require open beta which you are in. Your and mine task is to find and
report bugs.

Your question about software ViceVersa, read above and add there software
companys support of program for beta os...

Happy testing =)

Thanks, I just wanted to make sure that this was normal behavior, and not
something that no one else was seeing.
