FC hangs for a few seconds

I tried to search if anyone is experiencing the same issue but I could not find the answer. When I delete a folder or when I try to navigate to a folder or even when FC starts, even when I move a folder to another folder.... it always seems to hang/freeze for around10 to 15 seconds and sometimes more. It is like when a network drive is trying to be accessed and explorer spins and spins waiting for a connection. I love the program but this freezing that happens is really disruptive and does not make the experience smooth. Any solution for this?

Only on the network?
If you use some AntiVirus - try to test without.

I had a delay when I accessed the Recycle bin tab, about 10 seconds, but only the first time.

In 825 it looks I have a delay 2 seconds every time I switch to this tab, I have about 1400 files in the Recycle bin and using column profile and auto views.

Same 2 seconds delay with default settings.

With 810a I have a delay just about 0.5 seconds.

It is not hanging or freezing only on networks. What I meant is that it freezes in the same manner as when you search for a network in Explorer and you get that kind of delay. I delete any folder or file and it takes 30 secs and sometimes 1 minute to refresh and unfreeze. it is really so annoying that it makes it hard to worth with FC.

I don't think anyone can help you.
I'm pretty sure the problem can only be found on your PC.
What about AntiVirus or any other monitoring software?
You don't start the program "As administrator"?
What is your Windows and FreeCommander version?
Have you tried several FC versions? It is simply to test the portable version http://freecommander.com/en/faq-freecom ... l-portable

Ok I ran the Portable version and it runs smooth like a hot knife on butter! So how can I fix this issue with the installable version Marek?

Open both instances and compare the differences, tree, view, tabs, paths - and also the Settings, NC-mode, refresh, other options...

You can also try to copy the freecommander.ini file to portable version, just to make sure it's some option, then also other files from the Settings folder.

Then probably send the freecommander.ini file to Marek via email to test.

First check the settings of the install version:

- in the install version save all settings Tools->Backup all settings
- in the portable version load the saved settings Tools->Restore all settings

Check if the portable version runs with delay.
Are the exe files in portable and install the same?

Marek & Dreamer, I backed up the settings from the install version and I imported it to the Portable version. The portable version still runs smooth like silk...what next?

Are you using any plugins?

Try to answer the questions:

What is your Windows and FreeCommander version?

Where's the install folder?

1- No plugins installed (there are the FC default zip and rear)
2-AVG but why the install version is slow and the portable is smooth? So I guess nothing to do with the antivirus
3- I start as Admin on both
4- Windows version: Windows Pro, version 2004, built 19041.388
5- FC version on both installed and portable: FreeCommander XE 2020 Build 825 64-bit donor
6- EXE files are the same

AFAIK, you should not run FC as admin without a reason, for normal usage. Try to start NOT as admin.

Really? You can see "Admin" in the main window caption and the program icon has red point in the middle?
If yes, try to start "normal".
AVG but why the install version is slow and the portable is smooth? So I guess nothing to do with the antivirus
Yes, that is illogical but I would make the test with deactivated AVG.
