    Hi, I just recently installed Vista RC1, and I am experiencing the following problem: when I go into Windows Explorer, I am able to navigate the C: drive at lightning quick speed (ie, I click on a folder, and it opens immediately). However, on the two other hard drives attached to my system (D: and E:), which have data on them and are in NTFS format, data takes an incredibly long time to access. I click on the drive letter, and then it takes at least a minute for the green bar at the top of Win Explorer to fill, and the drive opens. Then when I click on a folder, the same thing occurs before the folder contents are displayed. It is obviously extremely annoying, but I was wondering 1) if I am missing something, and 2) if anyone is having the same problem and if there is an easy solution.

    Any help would be appreciated! Thanks.
