Show Overlay Icons in Tree makes FC lag or freeze

If you have the Tree view ON and then the option Show Overlay Icons to display, when you open FC it will almost of the time lag or hang or freeze for over 5 minutes. Tick the Show Overlay box off and the problem is gone.

Can't confirm in 840 donor, which version are you using? Try to upgrade to 840 first.

I have the latest Donor version 840 64-bit and the problem occurs in this version.

Do you have the delay on every startup or only on the first startup after PC startup?
Do you use some overlay icons, e.g. source control system SVN?
Here you can deactivate some nodes https://freecommander.com/fchelpxe/en/E ... items.html. You could try to find which node cause the problem.

The delay is on 90% of every startup
I use Dropbox and it has overlay icons
I suspected the Network Node might cause the issue so I disabled it then I enabled overlay icons and I had no delay in the startup. Then to make sure it was the Network node, I reactivated it and I also activated overlay icos and restarted FC. I did not have any delay in the startup and that's weird really. I am sure I will have some delay very soon. This has been like this since I started using FC and that has been for a couple of years now.

Update: I noticed that if Dropbox is synchronizing and I start FC, It freezes to the point that I need to wait like infinity to have it unfreeze or until Dropbox finishes the synch.....that's I guess related to overlay icons that I kept it on and I was able to pinpoint this issue.

Would there be a possibility to look into this issue? I confirm now that the freezing of FC is due to the icons overlay. when Dropbox is Synchronizing, it is impossible to work on FC because it simply freezes. It unfreezes when Dropbox finishes the synch.

In the version 845 the overlay icons will be loaded in background, I hope it help.
