Windows 7: Thumbnails and overlays not shown after a while

02 Apr 2014   #1

Windows 7 x64
Thumbnails and overlays not shown after a while


I changed the drive in my laptop to a SanDisk ssd 256Gb. All the programs work correctly but I noticed this strange behavior with Explorer:

- when I open a folder (which I restored from my old disk) I can see image thumbnails and overlays (from svn) but after I navigate to other subfolders, when I go back overlays and thumbnails are vanished. That does not happen in windows docs/images folder which work fine.

Besides, after a while explorer takes a lot of time to show my computer drives (with the green bar hanging for minutes) so it seems that everything is going worse and worse the more I use the PC.

I tried to disable/enable thumb caching and I have less than 11 overlays in windows registry, any idea?

I have a vaio (SVE15) with Windows 7 Home premium SP1.
