Opening file on windows share, or large files, is slow

Opening file on windows share, or large files, is slow

Postby stijn on Mon Jul 16, 2012 10:29 am

I'm accessing plain text files of about 4mb on a windows share. Using wordpad/notepad++/... these files open instantly (both main machine and share are behind the same router on my desk).
Using ST 2.0.1, I get a progress bar and it takes more than 5 seconds to load the files.
Is there anything I can do about this? Does ST use a different method to access these files?

update: actually, opening large files in general is slow compared to other editors. Opening a 20mb file takes over 10 seconds here. Even WordPad opens it in a couple of seconds. (to eliminate cache I restarted a couple of times and opened it in different editors).
