Other than that you are fine. Maybe if the scans do come up with something try to defrag and see if that helps atr all.

what kind of files are you dealing with in that directory?
are there a lot of them? say more then 1000?

are they images and your view is thumbnails?

I can't find much that might relate to this. so I need some more info.

what OS are you on and what version is it? SP included...
