  • Win7 Explorer Issues

    Ok, I have having tons of issues moving files around on my computer with Win7. It is not consistent in when it happens, but there are times when I go to move a file from one folder to another it locks up and causes Explorer to crash. On top of that, there are other times when I try and delete a file or folder and is will do the same thing.

    I looked around for a fix, but all I have seen is the issue posted. Anyone find a quick fix?

    Hmm, sounds like your hard drive might be on its last legs (unless it's a fairly new drive)

    Can you disable/turn off any programs running in the background? Sometimes a background process could be interfering with explorer.exe and causing the crashes. Could you do a DiskChk as well? (Just to help rule out possible hard drive failure on the horizon.)

      I have 4, all of them are newer. 3 of them are VelociRaptors and the last one is a WD Green 2TB. Never had issues until migrating to Win7 recently. DiskChk comes up clean...

        I don't know, the only thing I can say try moving files in smaller chunks. Usually I have a explorer crash if I'm moving a large file or large archives/images. Other times it's because a file's corrupt.

          I haven't heard of this being an issue on Win 7 at all. I've had zero issues since it's release, not even one freeze on my crusty old laptop. I'd suggest that the culprit could be either your hd, or perhaps the hd controller on the mobo. Maybe even a caching issue. Bad ram? Either way, I'd suspect it's hardware related in one way or another. But, that's just my amateur opinion.

            Not that I've had to mess it with yet on Win 7, but perhaps you can up your vram like we sometimes have needed to in XP. Is this possible with Win 7?

              Yep. And like Vista, you can set where that paging file resides (as in on which physical drive/partition). Maybe instead of setting a larger page file, try disabling page file (requires a machine reboot) and see if that solves your problem BigC.

                I have a similar issue, both drives are good, and it only happens when I delete things.

                  Hmm, going to research this a bit more on Friday. So far I haven't experienced this in Windows 7 (at least not like you guys not knowing/suspecting the cause).

                    Re: Win7 Explorer Issues

                    Let me detail it a bit more...

                    Say I download a file. I can copy it to another folder or any other hard drive with no issues. With about 95% of the files I can cut and paste them anywhere and it works just fine.

                    Only the move or cut function dorks up my Explorer, occasionally. There are times I will simply copy and past, then try and delete the original but it tanks. It really sucks when I am moving files in bulk and one of them does not play nice, it causes the whole move/delete to stop.

                    My only two solutions is to either "hard delete" with Evidence-Eliminator software program (even that gets hung on a couple) or reboot the machine. After I reboot I have had no issues deleting or moving any files that were on the machine.

                    I tried some of the tips, page file is no help, but it was worth a try.

                      Hmm, well that sounds normal and on-par with my experience in any OS. We'll see what I can turn up tomorrow. Right now need to get back to prepping for a final.
