Is this the best way to speed up Bridge on a network?

I've been trying to use Bridge (MacOS v.9.1.0.338) over a network with little success. I've been plagued with latency issues: spinning wait cursor for many system calls, infinite write-times to metadata edits: just general frustration. I also had these problems when testing the network version of Neofinder. I had to buy an upgrade license to test it, and it just didn't work. The Neofinder developer tried to help, but soon ceased responding to my requests. However,  his last email to me included a link to this article on the Apple Support website: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT208209. In it is a Terminal command to "...prevent macOS from reading .DS_Store files on SMB shares. This makes the Finder use only basic information to immediately display each folder's contents in alphanumeric order." The artilce  quoted the code and I it copied and pasted it into the Command Line. Suddenly Bridge performed as expected with files located on my server.

 

Honestly, I don't understand .DS_Store situation. I do know that Bridge now works as I want it to over my network.

 

Does anyone else in the community have a similar problem with Bridge? And have you tried this solution?

 

Thanks.

Jim

.DS_Store files contain Finder information. I don't know that Bridge uses them in any way. Unfortunately, working off a server can be problematic and often has nothing to do with Bridge.
