    Lag when renaming folder in Windows 10

    Hi there

    So basically whenever i tried renaming a folder it kind of lag for around ~1 second before it can complete. It is not really a major problem but it is a problem nonetheless since I have only recently upgraded my system and it should not produce that kind of performance. here is my spec:

    Intel i5 6600
    Samsung evo 850 120 gb ssd
    Gtx 1060
    8gb ddr4 ram

    I use samsung drive cloning tool to clone my previous windows drive to the samsung ssd. Might this be the culprit? Should I tried reinstalling windows?

    I also did several things to my pc before I notice this problem (which I dont think is the cause, but I will list it anyway)

    1. Windows anniversary update (unfortunately i didnt notice if the problem happen before or after the update), and i already deleted windows.old to save some space.

    2. Installing msi afterburner and did some overclocking
    3. moving batman arkham knight from hard drive to ssd (my main drive) using steam mover.

    I tried to clean boot my windows but the problem still occur, so other programs probably are not conflicting with this.
    I also tried unchecking the option 'read only' on file properties and disable the file index but both method was unproductive.

    here is the video showing the problem


    Thank you for the help
