[Help] External Hard Disk error: Folder Won't Load !!

Hey all,

Since a few weeks I am facing this error. Whenever I try to browse Movies folder from my External Hard Disk the folder won't load !!

I tried creating another movie folder in a different partition but the same problem persists there !

It only happens with the folder which contain movies ! Rest all the folders containing pictures, music and other documents run fine !!

I tried to scan the folder for viruses but the speed was so slow that I couldn't complete the task ( 100 KB/s scan speed )

For better understanding of my problem please see the image attached !

Note: Never faced such kind of problem in Internal hard disk !

Thanks in Advance
Siddharth :)

See if turning off of indexing of drive contents solves the problem.

Which option to select ?

1. Apply changes to G:/ only or
2. Apply changes to G:/subfolders and files

Excellent.

Now did you at one time have XP, Vista, or Win 7 installed on G:?

I ask because the partition is marked as Active.
