When I delete files/folders in XYplorer, it hangs (menu bar goes blank, can't do anything, etc.), sometimes up to 1 minute.
I can go delete this file or any other in MS Explorer while XY is hung without any problem........................
I'm having the same exact problem as described by Plastic. XYPlorer 8.80.0038 (Beta)

XP SP3 - Avira AV


--edit------

BTW this doesn't happens with the stable release 8.80.0000

Is there some kind of workaround?
I can't move or delete files anymore - XYplorer is totally unusable in this mode.

Is has been established that this problem only arises when the recycle bin contains deeply nested folders. So a logical workaround would be to remove those folders from the reycle bin.

Just to clarify - my recycle bin was indeed full and bloated when the problem first started a few months ago now, but clearing it (and running CCleaner, defragmenting, restarting etc.) didn't solve the problem.

I really like XYplorer. But I can't use it for some time now. File explorer that can't move files around or delete files is useless. As much as I hate going back to Windows Explorer and forfeiting my license I find myself doing just that.

Can you post your configuration details: Windows version, exact XYplorer version, security software, CPU, RAM? Also, can you expand on the moving files problem?

Some time ago I was deleting 1000+ files (many sub-directories) and XY became so slow as to be unusable. I switched to x² and continued with that, which was fine. Out of curiosity I tried T.C. and no problem with that either, so there is something that XY is doing different.

Possibly related:
Select a reasonable number of files in the recycle bin. Context menu key (or right mouse click) and wait..... and wait..... then the menu appears. I've just tried with 120 files, many sub-directories, and it took 40 seconds to display the context menu. In x²'s recycle bin, under the same conditions, the menu is instantaneous. Nothing to do with caching because XY takes the same amount of time if the action is repeated.
Those people who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those of us who do.

Confirmed (but I don't think it's related). I measured around 40 msec per item on my system which is real slow. I looked at it but could not find a way to make it faster.

Checked with 1000+ files. x², T.C. & DOpus all display the context menu almost instantly.

My longer time is possibly due to the fact that some of the files were 8 or 9 directories deep and on several removable drives, each with it's own recycle bin.

Moving off topic, deleting the 1000+ files from the recycle bin using XY the display is never refreshed, although the files are deleted from the bin. Checking with Process Explorer and XY is inactive, but not locked out because a refresh of XY shows the files have been deleted from the bin.

Just checked with Explorer: When you click on "Properties" in the context menu it looks like only the context menu of the focused item is shown, not of all selected items. Can you confirm this? This would explain the speed of course... :wink:

I'll check that refresh issue...

But XY only displays the properties of the focused item.

Ok, true, but this has other reasons. Explorer normally does display properties for all selected items, right?
