How to fetch large set of folders and files using GetFoldersAsync? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am creating an explorer app. I want to read a folder which has more than 5000 items in it. Im using folder.GetFolderAsync() API. This takes quite a lot of time to retrieve all the files and folders. 

    Is any way i can improve this performance. Once i fetch it, i need to render it on the UI gridview.

  • I/O performance is hardly to be improved. But you can improve user experience.

    I think "UI and Data virtualization" could help you

    Using virtualization with a list or grid (XAML)
