Yesterday a strange problem occurred on my Windows 7 machine. After some time the File Explorer was not able to move or list files in a directory.
Since I installed a new application before I thought that this new app must be the bad guy!
Today I discovered that this problem only occurs when opening specific folders. Déjà-vu!
Had exactly this problem under XP and now under Windows 7! Do Microsoft's developers never learn from their mistakes?
- Enable "Always show icons, never thumbnails" (File Explorer: Organize | Folder and search options > View)
- File Explorer: Organize | Layout | Details Pane/Preview Pane
In my case the first solution did it!
MS wasted some of my (spare-)time again … Maybe this blog entry helps other to safe some time!
