    The features which detect whether or not a specific drive is ready, or build
    the list of drives which are ready, on my system require over 21s for a
    disconnected but mapped network drive. In contrast an empty DVD drive takes
    only 0.24s. I wonder if the next version could build the READY list when
    starting up, and use a drive monitor thread to keep the list up to date.
    @READY could then just scan the list for drive status. When SHRALIAS is
    used, the list could even be kept in one of its memory-mapped files, so that
    any new TCC instances would have instant access.

    I am emailing this post on 2010.01.06 @ 09.58 EST.

    Hi,
    Is the WebClient Service running on your system? I disabled it on my system, which sped things up noticeably.
