I don't know if searching by date would be faster, I never
use the sort by date because of my naming conventions:
text-yyyymmdd-counter_from_camera.ext, so it's already sorted by name &

To me, it looks like the slowdown/speed is due to the thumbnail
previews. The files are there but then DK takes a while to display them.

I have 50000 images (no video), is it worthwhile to convert to
mysql/mariadb? How much faster would it be?
