Microsoft defender slowing down Icedrive / high hard drive usage when starting in Windows 11

Just add “Icedrive.exe” to excluded processes in Windows Security.

It is reducing disk usage from 100% (or 5 minutes straight on HHD to 0-2%.
It also make faster starting sync from 5 minutes to 5 seconds, when starting program.

Adding exclusion:
Windows security → Virus & thread protection → Manage setting → Add or remove exclusions (bottom of the page) → Add an exclusion → Process → Type: Icedrive.exe → Add

I hope this will help someone :blush:

Thanks for the feedback, I’ll also forward to our dev team for consideration with the new drive app.
