in thread use threads for dir tree walking really hurts

Thanks for you suggestion, but indeed I dont dare to touch the MFT ( which is far beyond my ability and resources ) Ha!

I had added a rewrite to my OP which can run as fast as dir does, and I think that's good enough for me, but please help to point out if there's any potential problems there. Thanks a lot!
