    Hello everybody,

    This is my second post on the same topic, although I had some very helpful
    suggestions unfortunately they didn't work out.

    I have problems with deleting, moving and copying files regardless of their
    that is whether graphic or text. I've to wait for about 30 seconds before
    it is deleted.
    The same in Recycle Bin as well. I click on to delete file a dialog box
    appears which says
    "calculating time reaming" and after about 20 to 30 seconds finally is

    However when I click CANCEL in the dialog box, the response is SERVER BUSY
    Click "SWITCH TO" to activate the busy program and correct the problem.
    After I click Switch to it generally deletes the file.
    The question is what program and where it is??

    Does anyone can provide advice how to deal with it?
    Or anyone had this kind of experience? Please help?
    In Windows Mail the deleting files is - normal.

    Thanks Marian

    Among the many factors that make Vista the worst product ever released by
    Microsoft is that Vista is very slow on all file operations compared to XP.
    There is no good reason for this other than very poor programming by
    Microsoft with far too many background operations hogging the system.
    Microsoft either assumed no one would notice or increasingly fast computers
    would hide their lazy programming.
    For example installing the identical program in XP is generally several
    minutes (minutes, not seconds) faster than installing the same program in
    Depending on the components in your computer (cpu, type of hard drive, RAM)
    what you are experiencing may be "normal."
    Vista is that slow.
    If you can configure your system for a dual boot with XP I strongly
    recommend you do so. XP will allow you to do real work with your computer
    instead of endlessly twiddling with the operating system. If Microsoft
    issues a service patch (essentially a rewrite of Vista) you can switch to
    Vista has better Hearts and Solitaire games, but playing those games is
    about all Vista is good for.

    Hi there. This was cross posted to
    Please refrain from doing so, the group is
    not about MS Windows.

    A lot of Linux users over here, I guess the travails of Vista has
    some amusement value for us, but it is off-topic.

    Good luck.

    I'm sorry, but this forum ( can't help you.

    You see, the forum is for the discussion of the X network
    protocol, and the graphical windowing environments that use it. This
    forum has nothing to do with Microsoft Windows except perhaps discussing
    X implementations on that platform.

    Your question has nothing to do with X, and probably should be asked in
    one of the* newsgroups instead.

    I'm sorry,

    "Voi qui entrate in Microsoft lasciate ogni speranza"

    Tried all of that :
    Remote differential compression to uncheck
    It does not work for me and it has no reason to work for a local
    drive !
    Nothing found on microsoft except this advice

    Remote differential compression unchecked
    Indexing unchecked
    Windows defender inactivated
    DFS unchecked

    According to all cures to apply

    Unfortunatey still 50 seconds to rename or delete a directory...

    The truth is that m$ is a very heavy bull ****.

    Better install ubuntu
    Remaining problem is how to be refunded for vista i never asked for...
