    PC crashed/hung, now always getting green progress bar in Explorer


    I wonder if anyone can advise. On Friday my PC hung/crashed (I think it was while opening an nzb file), and I had to restart by right-clicking the start button, left-click was gone. Now every time I open windows explorer and every sub-folder I go into, I have the green progress bar loading slowly, and files only being available to access slowly. Is there a way to fix this? P.S. I'm not even sure what that progress bar bar is exactly, it's to do with indexing folder contents? Windows 10 Pro, 20H2.

    :)

    Green progress bar in File Explorer


    I don't remember how or when I made a change in File Explorer, but each time I call it up now, I get a slow moving progress bar in the bar where it identifies the location. I noticed there in the search bar it shows where it is going: "search (JPC crashed/hung, now always getting green progress bar in Explorer :) Jack" as an example.

    How do I stop this? It takes a lot of time, depending on the folder.

    Slow Green progress bar in File Explorer - possible solution

    I've had a problem with File Explorer since upgrading to Windows 10, where I get a green progress bar that crawls along slowly, delaying the results of folder display such as the Download and Documents folders. It could take up to a minute before the folders
    would display.

    I tried many different things as possible solutions that I'd found when searching the web:

    • SFC
    • DISM
    • various options in File Explorer

    Nothing worked for me.

    I then thought perhaps there's a problem with the indexing. I was about to rebuild the index under the control panel\Indexing\Advanced options, but by chance went into the Modify option which looks at indexed locations.

    Here I noticed there were pointers to my D: drive to a series of folders which are not there any more. They appeared to be from an old user profile, with a comment beside them saying 'Unavailable'. I unticked these, clicked OK to save the changes, then restarted
    File Exlorer and found that I no longer get the slow green progress bar when I go into my Downloads and Documents folders.

    I had upgraded to Windows 10 Pro x64 from Windows 8.1. I don't recall if I had this problem with Windows 8.1, but I think I probably did. Also, I used to re-direct my Documents and other personal folders to D\:username, but now I redirect them to D:\Users\username,
    and think somehow the old location was remembered by Search.

    It worked for me. Hope it works for you.
