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

fast HDDs, etc. They're all on the same partition. I have disabled
previewing, or thumbnails.

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.

Dissent is patriotic, remember?
