the question is what is slowing down the 'trashing huge files'
I've seen a couple of posts about slow disk activity when working with large savefiles - I have no idea how this all works but I wonder if it has anything to do with high cpu load or high I/O load because of the fact that a savefile has it's internal filesystem, which is having to be overlayed on top of the disk filesystem, and requiring many directory/partition table updates as checkerboarding gets sorted out. Just tossing ideas here because I have seen the occasional v_e_r_y long delay when saving/copying savefiles (you can probably tell I don't understand how the filesystems work...)
