I know there has been some recent posts on other websites about this but the fixes outlined (such as downloading an "unlocker") dont seem to work. I've been dealing with a lot of .tif satellite imagery that I'm trying to move around.
After copying say 20GB from an external hard drive to the PC, which is successful maybe 1 in 3 times, I get these problems:
- Trying to rename the folder afterwards, with nothing else open, hangs
- Trying to copy other folders hangs at calculating
- Closing the explorer window and opening a new one hangs
Several restarts later and I'm maybe able to change the file name or copy things over, then the problems occur again.
Ive also booted into safe mode and Im actually getting the same problems as in a normal boot. I did the usual driver thing for external hard drive and checked updates but this seems to be a big problem with Windows 7. I cant keep shutting down because this is a workplace setting dependent on production. Any help would be appreciated.
