In resizing partitions, I am doing file movements from disk to disk, using Windows Explorer. (Resizing partitions is not the problem here.)
Three times now, the file disk-to-disk movements have stopped (hung).
When I cancel, it refuses to cancel, showing "Canceling..." but never completing.
When I look at Task Manager with all processes showing and sorted on the CPU column, the second process on the list is 'explorer.exe' at 13%, which never changes. (System Idle is 87%). No other application is running (it's a fresh start).
When I go to Logoff or Restart, an alert shows "Shut Down" in the title bar and "Windows can't shut down or restart: some files or services are still in use. You can continue to wait, or cancel the process and try again."
End Task will forcibly stop it, as will a forced Restart or Logoff.
This is not acceptable behavior for a Microsoft file system manipulating application (Windows Explorer).
Does anyone know the reason?
