    SW System Cache not Releasing for Folders

    S. Casale

      This existing thread (2014 not releasing memory. ) states this was resolved some odd time ago. Not sure this is the case, unless I'm special (pronounced Spacial)...


      If I save a file to a folder, I cannot modify in anyway the folder for some time - if ever - after when I close the file in SW. I often have to close SW entirely. Sometimes it's been hours!


      Any one else have this problem? I've never ever not had this problem with SW.


      Currently, 2017 SP3.0

          Do you have your preview pane turned on for Windows Explorer?


          The reason that I say this is that I think that the system takes a LOT longer to release the memory for that folder if the preview pane is on.


          Ever since I have turned the preview pane off, I have not had the issue.

              I never use preview pane in windows. This most specifically due to the well known windows bug where as windows does not release cached just like SW doesn't release communication with a folder...


              Perhaps this is a network thing the SW has... Why do I say this? I've always used SW on a network when saving files (sometimes vault, sometimes not). Vault doesn't have an issue with SW in the context of this thread though.
