Sadly, Japan has none of that luxury. I mean, all the land is either an agricultural area, developed area, or mountain (which sometimes is also agricultural or developed. Then there's the whole volcanic island chain full of faults thing. Even if you put everything on the back side of the mountains, they get such heavy snowfall you'd have trouble keeping things running through the winter.

Explorer always waits on lower-level file functions to gracefully complete before letting you interact with it. In your case, it's probably still in the "calculating" phase and will wait on that subtask to complete before it reverts everything. I commonly deal with servers with several million files (bad software). Its a pain in the neck when explorer waits on things. Don't get me started on loss of connectivity when explorer has a mapped drive. Sure you're just trying to go to "C:\," but explorer is too busy flopping around as if you've stabbed it in the back.
