Hello, I've had a Toshiba Satellite laptop for about 6 months now and just today began experiencing this problem. I use a program for making music called FL Studio, and went to export a song to a WAV file. Since "split mixer track" was selected, I got a WAV file for every mixer track, and for whatever reason, every single one of those (10+) files came out corrupt. This has never happened before. Whenever I open the folder (A VERY important folder with all of my song files for FL) explorer.exe starts to choke up and use 100% of my CPU (verified by the task manager) before I even get a chance to delete the files. I know it's these WAV files because one made it to my Recycle bin, which now has the same problem. I can't even access my recycle bin, so this is a pretty serious problem. Sometimes, explorer will be too choked up, and I can't even get to the task manager, which means I have to force-shutdown my laptop.
Please help, there are very important files in that folder.
I think if I can just get rid of all those WAV files from that folder somehow, I'll be fine, because I can view folders with other WAV files in them just fine. It's just that particular batch.
Is there any way of viewing folders or deleting files without explorer? I don't know, this is very aggravating.
(Windows 7 x64)
UPDATE: My friend has helped me get rid of the corrupt files and save the important ones. The folder is gone completely and the important files are in a new folder. HOWEVER, we can't get rid of the one in my recycle bin, and it still has the same problem.
