Slow File explorer with multimedia fodlers.

Copper Contributor
I have a problem with the file explorer and it's driving me crazy, that's what you can see in the video. It does it randomly, now it does it, tomorrow I access the folder again and it loads instantly, but within two days when I access it it does it again, there is no pattern. and it does it to me with any folder and on any hard drive (the one in the video is an M2 and it takes a long time). The only folders in which this has never happened to me are the user ones (my documents, my images, downloads...)

This has been done since the first day I installed windows 11 in November of last year (a clean installation, I renewed the PC so I installed win11 from 0) and I have it updated.
The fact is that for work I access many folders constantly and it is a real headache, to the point that I am considering going back to win10 although I would not like to do it because I do not feel like reinstalling and configuring all the programs.
For what it's worth, I have a ryzen 5900x and 32Gb of RAM.
