Long time to show just subfolders

Why does it take such a long time in Bridge 2024 (and 2023 and before) to show the subfolders of folders full of images?

If I have a folder with about 1.000 image files, it might be acceptable to wait a little bit until all images are loaded from cache or the thumbnails are created.

But why are not all folders shown from the beginning? There are no thumbnails/previews to load for folders. And often you want to navigate some folders deep and have to wait on each "level" all images to be loaded before the folders are shown.

Even if you just expand the folder in the folder's pane it took a very long time to show the subfolders - even if there no thumbnail must be shown.

 

Please correct this annoying behaviour and show the folder directly at first at no time.

Hi, @konrad79 , Gosh, I'm not so sure. On my system, the display of subfolders is instantaneous.

 

However, I'm assuming you are speaking of seeing the folders in the Content Tab and you are not talking about the folders observed in the Folders Panel?

 

What is your equipment? Your OS (and what release), and please verify what release your Bridge and Photoshop are.

 

Thanks

I'm speaking of seeing folders in both - the content and the folders tab.
If there are no or only a few images in the folders, everything is quite fast. But if there are a couple of hundred or maybe ~1000 photos in the folder, it seems that Bridge just load the photos (from the cache?) and if it finds a folder in it, it shows it - but, you know, the folders are not the first in the list,  maybe sorted by hash or date or whatever they are "plopping up" folder by folder - and the last folder is shown around the time, all photos are loaded from the cache (what can be douzens of seconds).

 

My system: Brider 2024. Bridger 2023, Bridge 2022.

Windows 11 - 64GB RAM - SSD for cache.

But the problem already existed in earlier versions of Bridge as well as of Windows for years.
