I have a NW server 6.5 sp7 that we store images on. I have to do a directory listing of these images each night output to a file to be used in other processes. The directory listing takes about 2 hours. I am simply doing it through a DOS prompt on a Windows machine. Is there any faster way of doing it? Any suggestions would be great. My problem is when there are any other issues going on that make this process get dealyed and I don't find it until the morning when my users would actually need it. I have thought of doing it once and then just trying to catch any changes - but there are images getting put in from multiple sources, in and out of my organization. Just wanting to see if anyone else has any better/faster ideas. the directory listing with all directories and individual documents is sitting at about 2.2 million currently.
