Short description of error
If I am trying to append anything from Blender file remotely on a network drive, chances are that it will be incredible slow or even freeze Blender completely. This is massive issue that has been hindering our production. As a medium game studio we are using one remote drive with all our working files. Many times we need to append some parts of one Blender file to another however because of the remote character it is for some reason incredible slow to brows through the file's hierarchy. Many times opening subfolder in the file's hierarchy takes many minutes, and very often it freezes the whole software. The only solution right now is to download the file offline and append from it, but that is really inconvenient for studio like ours to do this with every file.

Browsing through the file hierarchy may cause long lags or freeze. Bigger the Blender file is, more likely it is that it will freeze. Causing problem even on a very fast network
