Whilst I would find it hard to live without DOpus, there is one extremely annoying issue with it that I’ve never been able to solve (and yes, I’ve read the FAQ). Every now and them, seemingly randomly, it just stops working and the swirly rotating hourglass replacement appears. If I click anywhere on DOpus the screen goes milky white and I get the “Opus Directory 10 is not responding” message — sometimes, if I wait for 10 - 15 minutes it clears itself, sometimes it doesn’t.
I am going slowly nuts trying to find some common factor which triggers this. The only thing which seems more likely to trigger it than otherwise is if another program such as a file shredder starts deleting or changing files in a directory which is currently open on the DOpus screen — but again, not invariably.
There are no crash dumps or anything which might help. The only thing which is perhaps unusual about my W7 Ult 64-bit setup with DOpus v10.5.4.0 bld 5080 x64 is that I’m running the Nvidia Surround system for a 5760 x 1200 screen (but the only hit on Surround I can find using the search facility refers to a multiline floating toolbar, which doesn’t sound relevant).
Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
