Hello Xgujuplaya,

Since it seems like you have a lot of files with thumbnails in that folder, it may take longer than usual for them to load. You might also see if clearing the thumbnail cache may be able to help.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

As a test, disable the thumbnail cache to see if the thumbnail previews will all load afterwards. They may take just a bit to load if you have a lot of files in there though.

Umm, ok. You might see if toggling thumbnail previews off and on may be able to reset it and have it display properly afterwards.
