RE: Windows Explorer very very slow

"Did you uninstall - reboot - install - reboot?" - yes several times playing with things
"Are you able to remove the working copies and do a fresh check-out?" yes

After Windows explorer is done its 5 minute, figure out what is up (after drive letter selection), it responds quickly, and I was able to do a fresh checkout, and modify/commit just fine. All SVN functionality seems to work just fine. It's just the first time you bring up an explorer it takes forever to come up ... locking up the machine for a good portion of that time.

If I uninstall SVN, Windows explorer responds as expected

Hi Chad,
2008/7/29 Chad Adams <cadams_at_neovest.com<mailto:cadams_at_neovest.com>>

I recently updated to version 1.51. After updating, I forgot to reboot. A few days later I did some SVN activity, forgetting about rebooting, and got in a very bad state. After rebooting things went from bad to worse. I uninstalled SVN and windows explorer was back to normal. However after re-installing SVN, windows explorer once again went to the super slow mode.

A windows explorer will pop right up on activation, however upon selecting a drive letter it appears to lock up for about 3 to 5 minutes. It will peg CPU for about 1/4 of this time, but then CPU goes to nothing but update of the explorer does not happen for a long time after.

Is there any registry settings or other files that I might clean up to resolve this issue?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions that you might have!

Are you able to remove the working copies and do a fresh check-out?
