User "Download" folder problem

Odd problem win10 pro. My user "Download" folder contents would not show in Explorer. "Working on it" appears and eventually top bar says "not responding" (no problem w/any other folder). Rebooted several times, tried to restore from backup, seemingly restored (overwrote all files) but still couldn't see folder contents. Disk check shows no disk/file problem, windows defender and adwcleaner show no problems. Before restoring to a previous state, just copied user "Download" folder contents from user-file backup on thumbdrive (file history) into a newly created user "Dload" folder and deleted user "Download" folder. Solved problem, but concerned why it occurred.
