I've found that when a folder has many files (hundreds to thousands),
using the explorer is futile (as you point). However going there by
means of a console gives no problem, listings via dir are instantaneous
and copy operations are perfectly doable.

My personal suspicion is that the icons/previews/something are badly
optimized.
