Updated to Mint 18. File management with Nemo has almost become unusable. It locks up constantly when trying to move files from one folder to another. Out of 1000 pictures files in one folder, tried to move 115 files to another folder by click and dragging. Nemo locked up for close to 5 minutes before it copied half the files, it locked up again for close to another 5 minutes. It finally finished close to 10 minutes later, when the operation should have taken < 1 second.

This has been an issue with Nemo for a number of years now, but nobody cares to fix this. It was not happening this bad in Mint 17.x, but it just became a lot worse in Mint 18. Very frustrated with Nemo and its inability to handle large file management.

Got the same issue.

1: Select about 150 items (I had raw photos and about 2Gb in size)
2: Drag selected items to another Nemo window.
3: Result completely locks up Nemo. See screenshot.

I am running fresh Linux Mint 18 install on a decent laptop with SSD and 4GB ram.

EDIT: I also installed Nautilus, and I still have the same problem.

Just experienced the same thing, although it's not totally "locked", I can see files being moved one by one in the destination folder, but as described above, very irregularly. Then the destination folder looked empty again (Nemo was just lost I guess) and finally it ended really quickly (It took maybe one minute to move less than ten files, but in the end, the 100+ remaining files were moved in a few seconds). The little file manager window with the progress bar was saying "Preparing to move..." the whole time.
[Of course I'm talking about moving files from one folder to another on the same partition]

FWIW, this has been going on for at least three years without a fix.

Not sure, but it may also happen with Nautilus too though...
Also, when it's happened to me, it's locked up too (Not Responding Scenario)

FWIW, people are reporting the same bug happening with Caja.

Not very "scientific" but I'm also guessing it has something to due with the thumbnails generation. I mostly experienced it with images and videos and I guess it takes time to process. Don't know if that is a possibility for investigation.

I have this same problem on Mint 19.1. Figured it was something in Mint so tried some other fixes online with no luck. Installed Dolphin file manager and problem went completely away. Was able to copy and paste tons of pics with zero slowdown or lockup. Annoying that I'm finding that this is an ongoing issue that has not been resolved. Copying files is basic functionality.
