I have the same problem as you. It started recently and I am tired of waiting for the flashlight to find the contents of say the F drive. Evenually it appears but the waiting is tedious. I tried a restore but this had no effect, I have also cleared my 80Gb drive of old files and have about 50GB free, defragging also made no difference. I am using Windows Home XP. Did you solve the problem and if so how?
