Scanning Folder - Not Responding

I can't scan a folder anymore
Windows 10 64Bit - BRU v3.0.0.1 with Commercial licence
As soon as I try to browse to a folder containing 25 files (each only 225K), the programme is not responding.

Left it for 30 minutes and no result.

I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling, as well as recreating the local indexes

Any ideas?

Other folders are the same.

Any folders with more than 6 or 7 files in them seem to hang

Ok

Here are the 3 post I've seen that may be related to your problem:

-Link 1

-Link 2

-And Link 3

Hope something here helps, until the dev. can help... If these don't help and you have a Paid Version, Then you might want to try and PM him.
I'm sure Paid Version Gets a priority.

Hello,
I've been using BRU 2.7.1.2 for a long time on Windows 10, and I was extremely happy with it.
After a few months not needing it, I tried to use it today and realise that I now have this problem on most folders.
I upgraded to the latest version 3.0.0.1, with exactly the same behaviour.

I get the same behaviour if accessing local files or network locations.

For some reason, I'm able to read "some" folders. Could it be because they contain only certain file types?
I can open folders with only .iso, .epub, etc, but if they contain a .jpg or .mp3, I get the (Not Responding) issue.

I see no apparent link with the presence of .zip files in the directory tree.

This is an amazing tool, and I'd like to keep using it. At the moment, it is completely useless to me.

Regards,
(I posted this reply to two similar threads, I hope it is acceptable to the forum)


--------------

Update:
For some reason, it looks like Windows 10 had the issue. I tried to select "Open with..." from file explorer and got the same "not Responding" behaviour. A reboot solved my issue.

I had the same problem.
If you have the Bulk Rename extension in Explorer turned on (if not uninstall & reinstall), then go via Explorer to the folder where the files are that you want to rename, just highlight a couple of files that you want to rename, right click & choose the Bulk Rename extension, it will then open the program and, at least for me, it all works OK.
