Cache to improve network drive performance
Hi all. I have approximately 55k files on a mapped-to network drive. All my music plays fine - i.e. no buffering, skipping, etc. However, loading the views of my Media Library are terribly slow. For example, when I search "Radiohead" it takes a good 7 seconds to load the results. Likewise, if I switch from Video to Audio in the left nav, it takes 5 or so seconds to load the default view.
I found one older cache plug-in to help improve this performance for network drives. I could never get it to work with my version (currently 5.572 on Vista Home Pro).
Does anyone have any hints for improving performance of libraries that are stored on wireless mapped-to drives? I was thinking some sort of cache stored locally, but can't seem to figure out how to do it nor can I find a plug-in to do such a thing.
Thanks from Bangkok!
