Speed up file scanning

Postby Parduz » Mon May 15, 2017 3:56 pm

Hello from Italy.
I need to rename about 20K text files (hence, the "bulk" in the name is appropriate :) ) spread in a dir with subdirs.
When i click on the "subdirs" checkbox the program starts scanning and adding files to the gridlist.... but it is slow.
As a programmer, i know that updating the file gridlist each time a new file is found is slow, so i promplty iconized the program, saving a lot of time (but not knowing when the scan finishes).

So my suggestion is to avoid any refresh of the gridlist during the scan, and to show a standard progress bar (so the progress can be visible also in the windows bar when the app is iconized).
Thanks for the hard work :)

Yes, you are right, there could be an option added not to update the interface constantly if the scan is expected to take a long time. It would be quite useful, thank you for the feedback! :)
