Unhappy File Manager and Desktop files disappears!!


Well, I just started using Deepin a few days back. But yesterday, after surfing on Web, I opened the Deepin File Manager. On that screen, I couldn't use my right mouse button(options button). The button was perfect. But not working. The problem is also on the Desktop. Another thing, in the file manager, whenever I go to Home(Desktop/Documents/Downloads/Videos) the file manager closes itself. Even there was some files which was showing on the Desktop before, they just comes on for a moment and again disappears for 4-5 secs. It continues. Its like refreshing a high used CPU windows desktop. The mouse right button even works perfectly on the Chrome or Terminal!

Edit: It happens only when I record a video and save it in my Home. If there is no videos, it is all normal and perfect..

The file manager is responsible for showing the icons on the desktop.

If the cpu usage is too high(from recording) this will make other apps(such as the file manager) temporarily slow or unusable.

Check the system monitor that ships with deepin, it will tell you what your cpu, ram, disk, network, etc are doing. If your ram is maxing out: see if you can upgrade. But if it's your cpu: I'd suggest a lightweight distro since deepin is considered HEAVY .

What are the specs on your system?

Does this happen while you are recording video? That would tell me the hardware is not adequate for the distro you are using or the type of tasks you are doing.

The specs are decent to run Linux and do other thing. Even the system monitor shows that everything is perfect! But after I record a video and save it, the problem happens.

This is only happening when there is a recorded video saved on the Hard-Disk. It is also perfect while recording!

hardware specs.

or better even, watch it yourself: enter 'top' in a terminal before you start doing critical stuff, and see what is eating resources.

Are you running out of room on your harddrive? After recording that video post the output of df -h . Also when this system is acting up, what does the system monitor show?
