Perhaps it is a problem with Window's fast indexing. You could try
turning that off. I have found that it tries to index every file as it
is changed on the box. To turn it off, right click on the drive in
Window's explorer and then uncheck the box that pertains to indexing.
Then say yes and wait. There may be other ways to do it. I think it is
possible to do this on a directory and its descendant folders, but I
have never bothered to find it.
