JSI Tip 0404 - Why does it take Explorer longer than File Manager to view a file over the network?

Explorer supports OLE ( Object Linking and Embedding) and File Manager does not.

Explorer must download the file header information and other details such as associations and icon information to compose the view. File Manager simply reads the file label to compose the view.
