Why is my rewind so slow to revert my files?

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

I have tried rewinding a folder (with subfolders), but it just stalls at 

2 of 3 Fine Tune

It has been 3 hours so far - 

The screen shows some graphics - so show its working but I don't think it is.....

the folder and subfolder is about 3Gig and 40,000 files

can anyone give me their experience with rewind - amd i stalling or just expecting too much ??

 

Regards

Hi there @Leotec

I'd be more than happy to help look into this with you!

Initially, it sounds like there could be a third party app hindering the desktop app from completing its task to rewind.

Could you please try temporarily closing, for example, any security software that you might have in pace that could be affecting it or disable your antivirus? Maybe that will do the trick. 

Let me know how it goes!
