When I read your reply it said there
was a recent thread opened
about that and gave a link.
Now it does not say that
and talks about walking
Walking a directory for a large volume
is too slow. I already tried it and I was
happy with the time it takes.
What I want to do is read the volume as
a file is read. I am currently reading files
in 5kb sections and do this to EOF.
I guess when I read about volumes it was
in the C programming language. I know it
it can be done with C and I might need to
write a external to do it. I can read and
write files in C. If there is a way to do it
without writing a external it would be nice
to give it a try.
