We just rolled out iFolder 3.2 to about 100 users. (We've been using v2). Now, many people are complaining that their boot times have increased by many minutes. Usually in the 2 to 5 minute range, but one was as high as 15 minutes. In trying to debug it, we noticed that even with XP fully booted and the desktop loaded, if you try to open Windows Explorer you'll just get an hour-glass until the iFolder icon in the system tray switches from red to green. This process seems to take considerably longer for users that are disconnected from the network. (Laptop users on the road).

Is there a timeout that must happen before iFolder will finish loading and release Explorer? Can it be adjusted? Is there any explanation for the slow booting? Once iFolder finally loads that the icon switches to green, everything is fine. During that initialization phase, the HD light seems to be rather busy. Is iFolder scanning all the files for changes at load time? Could that be the issue? v2 didn't seem to do that...
