Album and Notes take forever to load

Has anyone had this issue:

When calling notes, or the Voice Recorder app, or opening HTC Album, they take a very long time to become ready. The Album is usable but take 30-60seconds to populate the thumbnails, and the notes app just spins the wait icon for about the same time til its usable at all. It used to work fine...

I tried removing the storage card to see if its was the issue. Notes weren't ANY different, and the few wallpapers i had in internal storage still took longer than it should to show thumbnails.

Suggestions?

Edit: Well, deleting my videos seemed to resolve the thumbnail issue. I removed almost every voice note I could find on internal and storage card and the notes thing is still a problem.

Re: Album and Notes take forever to load

Well the problem was more extensive than I thought:

Every app that loaded a file browser, ex. Word/Excel/PPT/Voice Recorder/Notes/etc took a good 30-60 seconds to load and save, and to choose a new folder to browse.

The built-in "File explorer" responded normally and quickly. I had not installed the "file dialog changer" or the file explorer extension.

Turns out, it was the "expose Network folder to other programs" option in Resco File Explorer. I use it all the time to transfer stuff to and from my other machines, so its kind of annoying that either I have the network folder, or programs are speedy and usable. Don't remember this being an issue with my Touch Pro or my 6700.

I guess it timed out trying to search the network folder for various file types every time the file browser appeared in a program.

Hope this helps someone...

I remember having that problem with Resco a long time ago & having to disable that feature so it wouldn't sit there looking for a network that only existed when I was on Wi-Fi.

Re: Album and Notes take forever to load

Funny you mention this. The Pro1 with stock rom also does tis. Notes take forever to open. Kinda odd. Specially that notes are simple.

Re: Album and Notes take forever to load

I guess it comes down to the search for the notes/files/whatever - if you have multiple external storage locations, the default integrated browser scans the whole lot. If your external storage is unavailable (wifi off) then you get a big long time out. Maybe there's a timeout setting in the registry for storage or network. I'm gonna hunt...
