Compile and save functions in Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 take longer when SEP file system Auto-Protect is enabled
Last Updated April 13, 2013
It takes longer to save solution files or to compile in Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 when file system Auto-Protect is enabled. With Auto-Protect disabled these functions complete more quickly.
While Visual Studio is trying to update Jump Lists, the file "C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\AutomaticDestinions\a9bf7c8f1099402f.automaticDestinations-ms" is accessed multiple times and Auto-Protect scans the file everytime it is accessed. This is expected behavior with Auto-Protect operating in its default configuration.
1. Exclude the following folder from being scanned: C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\
(Note that a specific user name would need to be listed in the above path in place of <username>.)
2. Exclude file extension, ".automaticDestinations-ms" from being scanned.
