I work with thousands of images. Mostly for time lapse. Under Snow Leopard things worked great in Finder. Moving, copying, viewing, sorting, etc. It would think for a second or two viewing 40,000+ images in one folder, but it was like a rock; it always worked. I just installed a fresh version of Lion on a new hard drive. And working with the same folders takes much longer to just simply view. Copying or moving from one folder to another *within in the same external drive* is not even possible anymore. Trying to move a meager 600 images now takes a couple hours. It's completely useless. I know there were external drive copy issues earlier this summer, so I'm wondering if this is related. Like this: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3204529?start=0&tstart=0 Anyone have or know a fix? Thanks for your time. P.S. I have my old Snow Leopard drive Firewire'd in so I'm able to at least work and break my images into more manageable chunks but this is a MAJOR issue and I hope there is a fix for it soon; soon as in yesterday.
