speed problem after vcs-update

when i update my sources (project size 7k files, 12k classes, update 1.2k files, 725 updates, 460 deleted), idea locks up for a few minutes. can this be made faster?

With so many updated files, this is probably caused by file synchronization. Speeding that up would be nice, of course, but I don't think that you get 1.2k updated files after every VCS operation, right?

no, but i get it quite often because i have to patch older versions and then switch back to the current one. what exactly is file synchronisation?

File synchronization is when IDEA detects changes in the filesystem, and updates it's internal cache to reflect those changes. VCS operations are always done directly to the filesystem, so synchronization is always triggered after.

Anyway... I don't think there's much IDEA can do here. 1200 files were updated, after all, and IDEA will need to read them all. It's been suggested before that IDEA should automatically synchronize incrementally during VCS operations, and not in one go when they complete, but I don't know what happened to this suggestion.

couldn't that be done in the background?
