IDEA should not care for each and every network drive !!!

why is IDEA getting extremly slow, mostly unusable, just because I copy some 100MB file over VPN network? (with total command, btw., don't know if that matters)

All other applications react as normal, just IDEA is
creeping.

attached you see process explorer screenshot that shows
that IDEA PERMANENTLY opens a file handle on a network drive (S:*cdn-srv1) that it SHOULD NOT CARE FOR

- sorry for yelling, but IDEA I can't use IDEA while that
100MB are copied - so I have time to whine here !!!

I'm currently studying the feasibility of overcoming this, though it is not
clear yet if we can actually fix it.

Thanks a lot for the information.

yes, it would be great if this could be fixed.

Be assured that this would grant you some additional licenses from companies that are working with ClearCase dynamic views or with slow network drives ! ;)

Fix will be available in next build.
Now only projects' content roots, library directories (nonrecursively) and
directories for which you've asked editors to be created (also
nonrecursively) are watched .
Besides there is an openapi for plugins to register their own watch roots,
but it is also plugin's responsibility to drop watching when needed.

First and second watches seems very reasonable, but I don't get the third one. If I create a file outside any content root, I really wouldn't expect IDEA to watch over it. Actually, I don't think this should be allowed at all -- but maybe that's just me, who never created a single file outside the content roots or library dirs.

The point is that you may want to open e.g. log file that writes outside the
project.
And of course you want to watch the changes in the log:)
And no, this is not expensive to watch, since subdirectories are not watched
in this case.

I see, I missed this use case. Log files are a lot more easier to watch with things like 'tail' or 'less'. Anyway, good to hear about the performance improvements in the next build. Question is.... when?
