Automaticully calculating folder size

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.win2000.setup (More info?)

Hello,

in Windows 2003 Server and XP the explorer counts automaticully the folder
size. Because we have an application which uses more then 200.000 folders in
one directory (don't ask me why) it takes a lot time to count the folder
size when you start the explorer. Also when using de indexing services the
computer needs at least 5 minutes to calculate the folder size (or the
computer is doing other things I don't know!)

AnY suggestions?

Can I stop the automated folder calculating behavior of the explorer?
How can I fasten up the performance when browsing through this directory
?(without bying new software)

thnx,

Marco J.L.
