    nautilus file manager is slow

    Hello all, I'm on OpenSuse 13.1 as well as gnome 3.10 and my Nautilus file manager is very slow. Everything is quite smooth and fast for the most par except when I switch to the hoe folder or open into the hoe folder, nautilus takes a few minutes to load up. I've tried re-installing nautilus and all its source files, a new file manager, and all types of settings.

    Any help would be appreciated, Thanks.

    Does the "slow" directory contain 10,000 of files?

    If so, you should add some extra levels of directories.

    Oddly enough no there are 14 main folders and within them are 495 files total. It really is an issue?

    Either at home or at work or down the pub
    Do you have any remote directories mounted in there?

    No, but I do have an OS X virtual machine file that might be it? Also just recently Gnome music and Gnome Documents haven't been able to read the contents of my Music and Documents folder respectively; and I suspect that these two problems are related... Any thoughts

    Thanks Again

    Also, Nautilus is a perfectly quick speed when another window is open displaying the home folder so that makes me wonder that I might be missing some cahe/tracker type packages
