    Copying and downloading files delayed process.


    I'm having a couple of issues on my Windows 10.

    First, if I download a relatively huge file (50mb upwards) the last byte gets stuck. Meaning the download indicator is already between 99-100% but its not completing the process immediately. I'll have to wait 15-30 seconds for it to complete. Same thing if I transfer the file to another folder.

    I'm thinking its a scanner issue, although I'm only using the default Windows Defender and non other. And that its not a browser issue since I'm experiencing the same delayed process on File Explorer (copying and pasting huge files).

    Could be a variety of things: examples:
    a. copying from a temporary buffer to the chosen location (if applicable)
    (You could check disk activity using task manager)
    b. Smartscreen check: e.g.
    Enable or Disable SmartScreen Filter for Microsoft Edge in Windows 10 | Tutorials
    Change Windows SmartScreen Settings in Windows 10 | Tutorials
    c. AV scan as you suggest

    If you capture your PC's activity at the end of the download you may well learn more.

    I'm experiencing the same delayed process on File Explorer
    This does however suggest it's more a matter of data being written from RAM (guess).

    How much free space do you have on C: ?
    Does your RAM get fully used during these events? (Task Manager).

    Could this then be a paging issue?

    Try capturing screenshots of your task manager towards the end of the copy process and during the delay period.

    My SmartScreen settings are set to Warn.

    I have about 13.2 GB of space left on C.

    I'll check RAM the next time.

    Will do take screenshot next time.

    Thanks!
