Windows 10: Windows Explorer Crashes when Creating or Renaming a Shared Folder
Windows Explorer Crashes when Creating or Renaming a Shared Folder
I connect to the directory of another computer in my office by mapping that directory to my computer (sorry if this is not the proper way to explain this). That works fine. I can access the directory and open folders and files with no problems. I can drag folders from my desktop to the mapped directory with no issues. Also, I can create and rename folders on my own desktop without issue.
However, sometimes I need to add a folder (right click - new - folder) or rename a folder (right click - rename). For the last few months, when I try to do that, Windows Explorer will crash and restart. I will get the spinning blue circle and when I click on the X to close the folder dialogue box, it will turn red. It takes a couple of clicks to close the box but at the same time Windows Explorer will restart. It is really getting old.
Anyone have any ideas on how to remedy this? I keep hoping one of these Windows Updates will fix this, but so far no luck. I do believe one of the updates in the fall created this problem but I have no proof.
Anyway, thanks for any ideas.

This has been happening recently. I can't say it is or is not related to the Anniversary Update. But when I create a new folder or rename an existing folder, the folder box will freeze for 30-60 seconds. Sometimes it will then function as normal,...
I have been having this issue for quite a long time (even when I was using Windows 8.1 before upgrading to 10).
Basically, Explorer freezes for ~7s when I rename/delete/move a folder. It even shows "Explorer not responding" in the task...
