    I want to do some organizing?

    also, has anyone gotten the export to Excel or CSV to work on the GUI? I click it but it never works

    What I want to do is delete the gcode of the prints that failed, and also organize the prints I want to keep into folders.

    I'd imagine doing these file mvs via ssh is a million times faster than through the GUI.

    thank you

    IIRC OctoPrint has the locations listed under SETTINGS->OctoPrint

    interestingly enough, cleaning up the file structure in that directory doesn't speed up the loading of that part of the webpage.

    I was trying to help improve the experience with the web interface.

    The limiting factor could be the I/O access speed between the SDcard and the Raspberry Pi internals.

    A good article explaining the formatting on a SDcard: http://3gfp.com/wp/2014/07/formatting-sd-cards-for-speed-and-lifetime/

    In a nutshell, SDcards handle data I/O in 4 Megabyte chunks and not in the familiar 4096 Byte chunks.

    Heh, yea it might be easier to try a faster access SD card but I suspect even that will not matter noticeably.

    Noted :) The Pi does not have a lot of bandwidth for Disk I/O

    The Raspberry Pi Version 4 has 2 each USB 3 and I/O speed on those ports is excellent.

    I agree, they upgraded the limiting Broadcom chipset to a new one and it is really speedy in comparison.
