I have been wondering for a few years why copying and deleting files in Windows seems to take so darn long! "Finding files..." step seemed to last forever. Why?

Because of an exception my code threw in Visual Studio that made the most sense as corruption on my system, I reinstalled Windows and cleaned up 5 years of clutter. And after that it was still copying and deleting files slowly. As I was installing Everything, and reading about Win 10 Search being broken in IN, my mind finally subconsciously made a leap that seems to have solved it!

Just disable Search Indexing! (I did it by disabling it on D - my data drive, through the Explorer properties window.) Then copying and deleting doesn't have the 'Finding' step, which is actually sending all the filenames to the indexing service to get things straightened out on that end. A quick test and there was no 'Finding Files' stage at all - right to deleting!

You probably already knew this, but I still had to say "Hallelujah!" Almost as fast as I remember Win 3.1 being! Yippee!
