Question

"Documents" Folder

When I click on my "Documents" (formerly "My Documents") folder in Windows 10, it appears to be taking a long time to download the files that are contained within it. Is anyone else having that issue, and is there a solution?

I haven't noticed this, but my folder is small & I have 6 GB

The Windows 10 systems I have on hard disk drives do use a network sign-in, but I'm using the 64 bit system and I have 6 GB of RAM. And I don't have very many things in my Documents folders. All of these things affect the performance in your situation, but you haven't given any of these details, so nobody can give you much help. I also have 2 such systems on SSDs, and that virtually eliminates any disk access delays.

My Documents

Thanks for the response. In "Documents", I hold World/Excel files, music files, photographs etc. Would you please clarify what an SSD is?

SSD - Solid State Disk drive. Has no moving parts.

The 3 components of an ordinary hard drive access are 1) Seek (moving the access arm), 2) Rotational delay (waiting until the sector you want is under the read/write heads), 3) Data transfer. With an SSD, you don't have the first two of these, just straight data transfer, making it a whole lot faster.
