Why is \Windows access so slow?

It takes forever to look at \Windows's contents, even if I'm browsing via active sync. What gives? Is there anything I can do to speed it up? Any files I can delete I don't need?

Re: Why is \Windows access so slow?

Because there's about a billion manila files all dumped straight in /windows. If you've added new manila files (TF3D from the HD for example), then it's even worse as the files in ROM are still there as well.

Re: Why is \Windows access so slow?

In \Windows there are 6287 files, totaling 246mb in size and it takes about 3 minutes to load.

on my desktop, my system32 folder has 16,589 files totaling 2.98GB in size. This folder takes less than a second to fill completely. Even if my desktop cpu is 4x as fast as my phone's, doesn't this seem a bit too askew?

It just seems like browsing the \Windows folder with active sync would have been faster. I know the cpu is limited, but my guess is Qualcomm's cpu simply doesn't handle file operations like this very well.

Have all WM devices always been like this? Are the Dell PPC's like this?

Mine wasn't really slow until I added the TF3D from HD

Question, do you browse your computers system32 folder via USB?
Probably not... it's just slow man... like coz said, it's the nature of the beast!

Could be. I haven't been particularly impressed by the accuracy and consistency of any of the benchmark utilities I've seen, so it's hard to put objective numbers on it though.

If you're looking to browse/modify files in the windows directory, I'd suggest avoiding activesync. I typically use MyMobiler's Mobile Explorer utility. It will bring up my Windows directory in about 1-2 seconds. Also, some of the old USB mass storage programs like WM5torage would let you mount the onboard memory for faster access.

You say you use myMobiler's mobile explorer, but when I tried to use it, it wants to browse the folders on my pc, not my phone. How do i browse my phone's contents?

Re: Why is \Windows access so slow?

Your desktop PC is using a directory cached in ram. Ram running 100x faster. Being accessed by a CPU running 8x faster (per core) with instructions that operate in far fewer clock cycles.

Your WinMo is trying to struggle through really slow flash stores, or mildly slow ram, with a slow cpu, with a mediocre instruction set.

And yeah, it's the manilla files. All you need to do is hard reset and never install anything and you'll be able to browse \Windows really fast.

Note, do not hard reset, that was a joke.
