fc hangs on Deleting any folder from left pane

#1 Post by vsrawat » 02.08.2020, 04:39

For decade, I have been noticing that if I deleting any folder from left pane, fc hangs.

Sometimes it starts working again after a long time, but when I am doing something there and cannot wait, I have use task manager to End Task, and manually restart fc. No mouse click or keyboard key works in fc window, just nothing happens. The taskbar tile of fc shows options of right click, but clicking "Close Window" there doesn't do anything.

The working way to delete a folder is to go to parent level of that folder so that the folder appears in the right pane, and select in right pane and delete there. Then no issues.

fc shouldn't hang for any reason so I guess It is a bug.

Thanks.

Please check this topic, it looks very similar:

FC hangs for a few seconds - FreeCommander Forum

And answer the same questions, it's important:
What about AntiVirus or any other monitoring software?
You don't start the program "As administrator"?
What is your Windows and FreeCommander version?
Try to deactivate antivirus temporary, is it the same?
If you start FC as admin, start in normally, not as admin.
Try to install the portable version, if you're not using it already.

What about path, is it local HDD, SSD, network, flash drive?

You could also test with default settings, you can test it with the portable version easily.
