Laptop freeze on photo folder

Hi, I have a problem with my lap top because when I try go to a folder that there are some important photos of mine everything is ok but when i scroll down my pc starts freezing and i cant do anything.I looked to my CPU usage and its ok, RAM is OK too, IDK what happened before 2 months it was ok. I scanned with my Eset Smart Security 7, nothing found,scanned with malaware bytes but nothing.That happens only in that folder with photos. Thanks

Sounds like you may have a corrupted file in that Folder. Might run a disk check from the Tools menu on the right-click and properties of that drive. Or Copy those photo files and subFolders to another place such as a suitable-size Thumb/Flash drive and try opening from there.

There's a number of ways files get corrupted on an HDD/Hard Disk Drive, has been that way since I started working on computers back in the mid-'90s with MS-DOS 5.0 and Windows 3.1. Could be from infections, power bumps, improper shutdowns, HDD failing, etc.

That does not fix the issue, only bandaids/prevents the issue.

I suggest a picture probably has a bad thumbnail. I would restore photos from a backup to fully fix it.

So it is an issue with corrupt thumbnail. In this case it might help: Thumbnail Cache - Clear and Reset

No problem mate. It might help, and might not, too. But that is an option to try for sure.

Photo Tags showing only in Library and not in the original folder
