Summary0029901: General: The file watcher can cause extreme amounts of IDE FPS issues within bigger projects
DescriptionWithin larger projects the file watcher will constantly be checking files for any changes made externally (even if no changes have been made) and will cause large FPS drops when doing this. This happens enough that users see it on a set schedule and can only work for a fixed amount of time within that period unless they completely turn off the file watcher.

The user reporting this is working on a large project that has at least 160k files, which makes the file watcher take even longer.
Steps To Reproduce1) Open the specified project
2) Use the IDE with the file watcher enabled
3) See that it is almost unusable
4) Disable the file watcher
5) Use the IDE again
6) See that no FPS drops occur
