Testing v4.4, still suffers from poor latency when opening folder with photos(thumbnails turned off). Network usage indicates majority of folder content is downloaded, not good when you open a folder with 1 gig of photos

I downloaded this yesterday, but it will not load. When I click on the icon, there is just a spinning circle. I uninstalled it and reinstalled it, but still it won't open. I see there is some issues with Windows 10 version 1809 keeping drives from mounting, but I am on Windows version 1803 build 17134.407.
