Most important fixes in Total Commander 8.52:

hanging when loading the drive buttonbar on Windows 10 (problems with some removable media)
- The Windows Explorer couldn't completely unpack ZIP archives created with Total Commander when they
contained more than 65535 files
New in Total Commander 8.51:
- File icons are now completely loaded in the background, so they should no
longer slow down the user interface
- More speed improvements when reading directories (icons, shared folder overlays)

overwrite confirmation dialog if target exists
- FTP: Faster upload in fast networks by using a dynamic upload block size
