Very slow startup on disconnected network drives

#1 Post by Lux44 » 10.01.2013, 19:45

First - thanks for a great program!

The slow startup issue affects both 601 and 609 (public previews).
I have a laptop and some network drives mapped for work. At home these become disconnected. When I start FreeCommander Preview at home, it takes over a minute for it to start. Trying to access the drives and waiting till timeout I presume.

Related (and smaller for me) issue.
When I log on again at work, the mapped drives are disconnected.
When I access the drive with FreeCommander Preview, the connection is not re-established.
When I access the drive from Windows Explorer, the connection is re-established (drive reconnected) and can then be accessed with FreeCommander Preview.

Keep up the good work!

I have the same problem. With mapped network drives, startup time of FreeCommander extends up to one minute, regardless of its network settings (for example "Load network in background process on program start".

Could somebody please help and fix this issue or provide a setting which disables network searches in FreeCommander totally - provide setting for some kind of "local only" mode?
