As I said before, 40000 files in a directory is a *lot*.  XFS is
optimized for big files (like that 295MB mbox file), not scanning

The other problem would be the Office Folder. It's 500MB in size and
it's one big file for an Mbox file. Each time, at logout, it would take
a long time to shutdown as it's re-sync'ing the mbox file. (it takes a
