File System Acting Odd When Moving Files

I have been having some space problems lately on my computer. I have a lot of games on Steam and they have been eating up my space, so I tryed moving the 72GB folder over to my 1TB hard drive and it's just stuck at 1 day remaining. I really don't know what to do. If I cancel it I'm sure it will take forever to bump it back down.

You have 2 choices. Stop it or wait till tomorrow. They may not even work when moved. 74 gigs is a lot of stuff to move.


Let us know if we can be of help

What I have done is move the sub folder into the hard drive as well, this seems to work but the other folder that is moving is still stuck at an ETA of one day left. Hopefully when the sub folders are one the other move should be complete. Next time I o this I might use an application of some sort since this way seems to be more of a pain then a help. I remember Microsoft had a powertoy I think that moved large files but I don't think it woul work on Windows 7. If anyone knows of any good large file moving free application that work on Windows 7 I would greatly applicate it

I just tried TeraCopy. When I select files then right click and pick TeraCopy, I end up with a window with nothing showing in it, yet if I move my pointer over various areas of the window, the window title changes, from File Operation to Switch to Move mode, Permanently delete files from disk, etc.

Anyone else see this? Any idea how to fix it? I registered at the site but have not received my E-mail yet.

Edit: Never mind, I rebooted and now it works. Very weird.
