Windows 10 explorer.exe crashes when browsing network folders containing jpgs and trying to enable preview

Whenever I access a folder on a networkshare containing jpgs and try to change the view to thumbnails, explorer.exe crashes.
Tried this from many different PCs, all the same. If I copy the very same folder to a local folder liek teh desktop, the files can be previewed as thumbnails.

The fileserver is a Windows Server 2012 R2 which is installed as a guest on a W 2012 R2 Hyper-V cluster.

Windows evenmtlog says: (sorry, German Windows)

Try the following:

System File Checker:

Open cmd.exe with Run as Administrator and run SFC /SCANNOW.
Allow to complete, restart or, preferably, shut down the computer and then start up again.
Test to see if the problem has been corrected.

DISM:

Open cmd.exe with Run as Administrator.
DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /Scanhealth (takes 15 - 20 minutes).
DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /Restorehealth (takes 15 - 20 minutes).
Restart the computer and test

If neither of these work, do a Repair Install from the Media Creation Link

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

Click on Upgrade to Windows 10 (even if Windows 10 is running), click on the Download button, select Open (Run) but NOT Save. Allow the program to run. Allow drivers to update. Then select Keep Everything.

Windows 10 1607 is fresh installed, updates installed too, hardware drivers up to date. Tried this on 5 different computers. all the same.

I assume the physical network is OK, and since all machines are having the same issue, it must then be a server issue. No problem for me with Windows 10.

What Antivirus do you have? Some AV products have issues with Windows 10.
It is not likely firewall (that would not cause Windows to crash).

Network is working in general, tried without any AV, too.

Can you share a drive on a different computer and then test. Does Windows 10 still crash?
0
 
EciatasaAuthor Commented:
It works if the share is on another Windows 10 computer. but I just copied that one folder.
If I copy that one folder to the same server but not in 5 subdirectories it works from that server, too.

if I use the UNC-path it works. could it be a path that is too long?!

You should have said. There is your problem. Path is too long and must be shorted.
You know the share works on another machine, so not a Windows 10 issue.

Shorten the path and you should be good to go.
