    Editing tags of media files images videos and audios makes Explorer look through all files...


    I've reinstalled Windows 10 Pro last week due to issues that I discovered were unrelated to the system itself, but now, new ones have come up.
    When I edit the tags of a media file, Windows Explorer's RAM usage raises exponentially. By using Process Hacker, I was able to see that ntdll.dll!ldraccessresource is what's taking up all that RAM and by looking at the disk section, it shows explorer.exe loading basically all the media files in my system.
    I've let it look through them for around 17 hours, and it had stopped, but explorer.exe was still taking 14GBs of RAM. After having let it finish, I thought it wouldn't do it again, but I was wrong. Editing a tag always causes it to start looking through my files again.

    I've ran an antivirus scan Bitdefender and it came up empty. I've also looked for similar issues but found no solution to mine.

    :)

    Cannot edit any metadata in audio and video files

    I'm running Windows 10, fully updated. All of a sudden and for no apparent reason, I'm unable to update any metadata/tags for audio and video files. Haven't tried to update metadata for other types of files.

    It's very important to me to be able to edit the metadata/tags on audio files so that my 14,000+ audio files organize correctly for playlists, etc., and I like proper metadata on video files as good practice.

    Audio files are largely .mp3, and video files are either .mp4 or .wmv.

    I have tried Properties > Details on individual files in File Explorer and several tag/metadata editors that have worked great for years. Some tag editors will show the metadata/tags it allegedly saved, but when I go back to File Explorer
    they're not there. I have also ensured that the same metadata/tag categories I edited in tag editors display in File Explorer.

    I've also tried some suggestions from forums:

    • Making sure proper permissions are granted
    • Ensuring I'm signed in to Microsoft
    • Copying a file and trying to edit the copy's metadata/tags
    • Copying the files to new and existing other folders and trying to edit
    • Ensuring the files are not read-only

    Any ideas on what could have made the metadata/tags uneditable all of a sudden, and more importantly how to fix this? Thanks in advance!

  3. Clear the 'cache' in file explorer for already used picture tags?


    If you set some tags for your *.jpg pictures, the windows 10 file explorer shows them in the "details pane" on the right side.

    This list can get very long and with some wrong or no longer used entries.
    How can I clear this list / cache / suggestions?

    Or how can I stop the file explorer to suggests already used Tags?
