Hi. I am attempting to update a Jtable with details of all the files on my computer. I am running Windows XP home edition version 2002 with service pack 3. Intel(R) pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.20 GHz

for (int i = 0; i<r.size(); i++)
            {
                Vector v = new Vector();
                {  
                     String s;
                     long d = ((File)r.elementAt(i)).lastModified();
                      
                     java.util.Date dat1 = new java.util.Date(d);
                     s = String.valueOf(dat1);
                     contents[i].getAbsolutePath());
                     v.addElement((String)((File)r.elementAt(i)).getName());
                     v.addElement((String.valueOf(((File)r.elementAt(i)).length())));
                     v.addElement((String)s);
                     v.addElement((String)((File)r.elementAt(i)).getAbsolutePath());
                     rows.addElement(v);  
                     table.addNotify();  
                     System.out.println(i);
                     
                    }
                }

Other code I have not published looks up all the files on my computer to put it in a JTree while this is happening I store all files the field Vector r. Then this loop updates the table rows. My problem is the program freezes. The reason I print i was to get printed confirmation that the loop is traversing the vector. The program has completed once and updated the table as it is supposed to; so in this respect I know it works. However, 9 of 10 times it freezes. I have only tested on 1 computer because well I only have 1. Could it be that I need a java update of some sort? Or perhaps just my computer? I suspect it is the Vector because initially I did this:

public void search() 
    {
        File[] contents = path.listFiles();  
       try
       {    
            for (int i = 0; i<contents.length; i++)
            {
                Vector v = new Vector();
                if(contents[i] != null)
                {
                    if (contents[i].isDirectory())
                    {   
                        search(contents[i].getAbsolutePath(), find); 
                
                    }
                    else
                    {  
                        String s;
                        long d = contents[i].lastModified();
                         
                        java.util.Date dat1 = new java.util.Date(d);
                        s = String.valueOf(dat1);
                        contents[i].getAbsolutePath());
                        v.addElement((String)contents[i].getName());
                        v.addElement((String.valueOf(contents[i].length())));
                        v.addElement((String)s);
                        v.addElement((String)contents[i].getAbsolutePath());
                        rows.addElement(v);  
                        r.addElement(contents[i].getAbsolutePath());
                        table.addNotify();  
                        
                    }
                }
            }
        }
        catch(Exception e)
        {
             System.out.println("Following Exception occured  - " + e);
        }
     }

This works 100% the first method works faster in theory because the vector has already filtered out directories so the loop is shorter.
Your help would be appreciated

However, 9 of 10 times it freezes. Give us more info, eny error... stack overflow?

Sorry, No information was given, it simply stopped. It did not throw an exception or anything at all. I have since rewritten the the code to make comparisons outside of the vector but I never got a solution to the original problem.
