Slow start of FC on large Desktop file

#1 Post by jpo » 14.02.2018, 09:27

Hi,

since a few days FreeCommander was starting very slow (about 1:35 min). I first tried re-installing, different versions, as well as a total clean start (new profile), but to no avail. Then I saw in another thread here that someone used "procmon", and I did that too. Turned out, that FC was accessing a large file (2.6GB) on my desktop. After removing the file from Desktop, FC starts as fast as always. So for me the problem is fixed, but you may check what is going on to fix that behaviour... Why is FC reading desktop files anyway?

Here's a part of what procmon recorded, this is repeaded for quite a while:

Could you provide additional info:
- What is your Windows version
- FC version
- Does it matter if you start with or without the tree?

The toolbar button "Desktop folder" make the problem if in the properties of the button the internal popup menu '$FcPopup_DesktopFolder' is set.
Changed for the next release.
