I'm not sure if it is relevant in this case but... Never attempt to
view or manipulate such directories with Windows Explorer. That is
just asking for a kick in the groin. Always use a command prompt
when working with directories with large number of files. Windows
Explorer is about as brain dead as you can get in terms of
manipulating files and folders (i.e. doing it's job). If an
operation is slow from the command line expect it to be several
orders of magnitude slower if done from Windows Explorer.
