I'm finding that Dropbox is making windows explorer slow, even when up to date. I'm also finding that saving evan a a tiny file or creating a directory within dropbox is painfully slow (10-60 seconds). Exiting Dropbox makes everything respond quickly. I often have to exit dropbox, do some work, then restart dropbox afterwards.
I have about 140K files and 120Gb on dropbox.
I have no problems with upload speeds, even for large files.

Let me know how it goes - thanks!
Hi Lusil..Thanks for your reply.. It did not work.. I tried both things..restared.. windows explorar is very slow.. no luck.. 3970x, 64 gb ram, windows 10..
Another thing is it wont index last few files after freash install saying 0 kbps and 2+ days wait time which is strange as i have 200 mbps connection.
Thanks for trying those out for me, @Dollmaker.

Keep me posted - thanks!
Thanks for the additional info, @Dollmaker.
I'd be happy to have a more in-depth look into this with you via email, but before I do, could you also clarify if you have:
Let me know what you find - thanks again!
