unRaid and OSX slow directory listing

I have been using unRaid server for several months now, and it works the way I wanted it to be. However, there is one thing that was really annoying. Mapping a network drive on my OSX.

At first, I thought it was the unRaid server’s fault, but after several days of tinkering, it was my OSX that was slow. In Linux, the folder listing shows up very quickly, and the same with Windows, but not on OSX.

To make this post short, the resolution is by going to:

Finder > ViewShow view options then uncheck the Show icons preview

That pretty much fixed my slow directory/folder listing for me. Hope this simple fix would work with yours.

Cheers!
