Whenever I open up a folder, that contained a lot of files, on my external hard drive it looked like the folder was empty, and all of my files were lost. But it turned out that the files were not deleted, the problem was that explorer.exe will automatically start constantly increasing its ram usage when I try to open folder that contains a lot of information on my external hard drive. This causes my computer to really slow down. The only way to stop it is to turn off my external hard drive. This only happens on my desktop computer, because when I plugged my external hard drive into my laptop, it worked fine. The only way I know to solve this problem is to re-install windows, however I really don't want to do that, is there any other way to fix this problem.Please be more careful in the future when posting topics.
