Calculating folder sizes... displaying for a long time 3785 and 3717

edited August 2011 in DrivePool
Anyone else getting the message Calculating Folder sizes... displaying for a long time? I've had it happening for the last 2 versions, which also failed to install properly on the first try.

The message is displayed during a pooled folder check and pooled hard drive check. Have not actually timed the message but I know it's at least several minutes.

    Folder size calculation is performed on a low priority thread using Background I/O priority. The time it takes to complete depends on other I/O activity. It will not interfere with other I/O to calculate folders.

    Folder sizes are refreshed once a day at night.
