"This background worker is very busy"?

Post by Brig » 2020 May 21, 21:15

Hi Nikos, et al.:

I saw a message from x2 (Ult x64, 4.4) that I've never seen before:

---------------------------
xplorer²
---------------------------
This background worker is very busy

Shall we try opening a new xplorer2 window?
---------------------------
Yes No
---------------------------

I said No and everything was fine, but can you tell me what it means? I was in a large network folder--working from home over WiFi--and things were going slowly (but not too bad).

Thanks,
Brig

this means the background thread was stuck in a long task, and couldn't service things like icons and slow details. Nothing serious
