Browsing SMB shares is very slow

Post by Stone-D »

I have enabled ExpandUNC=1 in the ini file.

Typing

Code: Select all

xnview.exe "\\server\path"
in the commandline results in a long pause as XnView scans the target. No window appears until this is finished.

Doubleclicking an existing image then pressing enter to return to the browser results in a blank browser window with the same pause before the display is populated with icons.

Trying the above with XnViewMP is problem-free, with very fast response.

Is there a switch I'm missing somewhere in the ini file?

No, this can be slow to enumerate network share.
