I am having an odd problem and I am coming to a point where I can't seem to find a fix. I've done a lot to find the issue or fix it but can't seem to fix it.
I am currently running Windows XP SP3 at the moment and it is a fairly new install. While moving a large folder from one another computer, a Vista Home Premium, to this computer seems to be where the issue began. There was some issues with the transfer, namely the other PC's networking stopped working during the transfer. This is where I first saw the problem. Whenever I touch the folder trying to access it, the folder hangs then goes "Not Responding". This folder is inside of another folder with more folders in the same main folder. I have no problems accessing the other folders or any other folder on the Hard Drive. One step I tried, seemed to work is, I went into safe mode and I can touch the folder fine there and was able to move the contents of the folder to another hard drive to finish the transfer after I restarted. I then deleted the hanging up folder and restarted the computer. I finished the transfer and had to move the folder back due to the other Hard Drive is just a small back up hard drive that I use. After I created a similar named folder to the original spot and moved the folder to the main hard drive. The problem started to happen again, exactly the same issue, the folder hangs then goes "Not Responding".
This folder contains picture files of various types and sizes with tons of smaller folders for organization of the files. This folder is also huge in size total, but I had no trouble with it on the other smaller hard drive.
Thank you for your time. Any help will be awesome as I am at the end of my rope. I hope I haven't overlooked something in the process.
