That should hopefully reset the db, and then all you need to do is browse in the XMB to start creating the cache. Obviously when you're creating the cache the first time it'll be slow to browse, but after that it should be much faster. You don't need to do the scan through the GUI to take advantage of the cached browsing.

And what does it help if after caching those files I can see them faster the next time - if I shut down the PS3, or Folding@Home kicks in? I don't keep running the PS3 24/7...
I would very much like to see the file list as fast as before. Please have a look at this...

I think you misunderstood... It's not a cache on the PS3. It's essentially a parsing database that PMS uses to keep track of what files are in what directory, and it is kept on the PC. Without it, PMS has to parse out all of the files in a directory everytime you go to it, which is much slower than just creating a list of files from the database. My apologies if my usage of "cache" was confusing.Ingo wrote:And what does it help if after caching those files I can see them faster the next time - if I shut down the PS3, or Folding@Home kicks in?

These will still have to be parsed in some fashion, and I'm not sure how much more shagrath et al can do to improve that speed. But you never know...Ingo wrote:1) Please have a look into speeding up freshly added directories
