Thanks ill run that test in the morning,

On a side note, i created another user account on my pc, and set the account to have admin permissions,
when i login to that account, all folders etc open perfectly fine without any issues, and open super quick just like they did before this problem started.

Hi @fubar1010

Have you deleted thumbnail caches to find out if issue resolves?

Yes you will able to access all your old account files if you have permission to do so.

I have done a disk cleanup and selected thumbnails, still no joy

The new account i created, i have set it with Administrator access, is there anything else i need to do?
