#1211 7-Zip 9.2 File Manager Flat View Hangs and Leaks Memory

Dave Kelly

Category: Serious
Program: 7-Zip 9.2 x64 File Manager
OS: Win 7 Pro x64
With root of disk ( C:\ ) selected in drop-down path selector, attempting to enable Flat View under the top-level View menu causes the 7-Zip File Manager program to hang (it stops responding); meanwhile, the memory consumed by the program commences to increase without limit while the program is hung. The process had to be forcibly stopped using Windows Task Manager.
Repeatable: Yes.

    With respect, I suggest that this feature and menu option be removed from the program. Regardless of the explanation, the fact remains that using this feature presents the hazard of crippling the system through excess consumption of memory resources, not to mention the fact the the program just stops working.
