    Have a look at an alternative to Windows/File Explorer
    xplorer2 Lite (freeware)
    xplorer2 lite: free windows explorer replacement (file manager)

    You can run them together. Who knows, you may even want to upgrade to the paid version eventually

    Okay this should be the right drive : https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachmen...48/unknown.png

    Test was randomly done, not in safe mode or anything.

    There's absolutely no need to use some third party app that can't replace Windows Explorer. Add that its not going to fix the Explorer issue you had. It's just going to hide it.

    Also you need to learn how to post images here because not many are going to click links to unknown sites. And I did post a link to a tutorial here on how to post images.

    Anyway you got the issue solved so enjoy.

    Peace:)

    Who said "replace" - what part of the words "alternative" or "run them together" needs explaining ? It's called "choice", sometimes Microsoft is not the be-all-and-end-all.

    Let's not play word games.... "Have a look at an alternative to Windows/File Explorer"

    Ever stop to consider the OP wanted to solve the issue at hand and not be use something else or they would have installed it? Not everyone wants to "alternative" Windows away.

    Ever stop to consider the OP may not have been aware of an/this alternative. It's called making an informed decision/choice.

    After I restarted, the green bar stopped showing up...not sure what might have done it.
    So the problem is solved now?

    A possible solution to Green Bar issues. I'll leave it here for future travellers:

    Right click on a problematic folder and check your settings as per screenshot. If it's optimised for anything other than 'General' try changing the setting.

    If that works, there's a .bat file that you can use to apply 'General' to all your folders:

    It's the magic reboot-fix. Fast. Cheap. Easy.

    I knew a desktop admin who used this as his main support skill.

    Its not an unknown site, its the host that discord uses for images.

    So just to clarify, is it safe to turn on search indexing for the SSD, or hibernate if the boot drive is the SSD?
