Re: Snapshot speed on managing files

To overcome this problem the file is moved to the recycle bin in

Corinna, I'm sure you thought about this already, but I thought I'd
check. Does this patch make sure to move the file to the recycle bin
on the same filesystem as the original file? So that it is really a
rename (fast), rather than a move (slow). Does it do something to
limit the number of files in a single subdirectory of the recycle bin?
(Might get slow once there are too many, especially on non-NTFS. If
not, might this be the cause of the problem the OP is having?).
