I have a directory I want to use with source control integration, but whenever I change matlab to another directory, there is the processing... that's constantly running in the "Current Folder" window. The problem is that this also causes Matlab to be very slow.

I have this same problem. It was running fine until I updated to 2020a and this processing icon appeared. I can't use MATLAB at all now...

this question and the comment might be outdated. However, I was confronted with the same problem today and ended up here. So this might be still interesting.
I found a solution here:
There you find the following solution to disable the source control system:
  1. On the Home tab, in the Environment section, click Preferences.
  2. In the Preferences dialog box, in the MATLAB > General > Source Control pane, select None.
I also saw that you can also disable auto-refresh of the current folder in the preferences in MATLAB > General, which might be also helpful.
