I have many media files in some specific directory (folder, call it as

How can I do to make this process faster?
Don't use a GUI tool that's designed for small subdirectories.
Slow to ls? reiserfs, xfs, btrfs, or the dir_index option and hash_alg
extended option of ext3.
Is the directory fast to ls, but slow to render in a GUI? Problem is likely
with the GUI.
Sorry, it is only slow to GUI (nautilus).
How many files?
Don't use Nautilus, or reorganize your directory structure.
