Re: [Ranger-users] file copy problems

Just to chime in and say that I've had similar problems to what Pau has 
described. I haven't really dug into the code, but it appears to me that loads 
of tasks are synchronous (executed sequentially as seen in the task viewer). 
This is especially problematic when I try to access network-mounted drives --- 
sometimes tasks are so slow that they pile on each other and never complete. I 
think at least some tasks should be made asynchronous e.g. File previewing 
shouldn't slow me down when I'm just moving my cursor highlight up and down.

Best regards,
Lingnan Dai
