Problem: FreeCommander starts very slowly (half a minute after executing program) if file bellow exists on Desktop. ProcessMonitor revealed that the file is constantly read.

ZIP file in question: Link, Direct download It contains code samples from book in the link.

ZIP file stats:
* Packed size = 90MB
* Size = 268MB
* Folders = 2797
* Files = 7894

It doesn't matter if Desktop location was opened in previous session, by some strange reason FreeCommander just reads that file on startup. If folder size is disabled, problem still exists.

FreeCommander XE 2015 Build 685 32-bit public (portable version), windows 8.1
