XP Crashing on bulk file deletion
Posted on 2006-06-11
I have a chronic problem with my XP Pro SP2 O/S. It frequently crashes (BSOD) when performing large delete operations. This typically manifests when clearing out temp internet folder (either 'by hand' or via window washer etc), but also when deleting outlook 'deleted items', and doing bulk file moves (eg moving a directory structure to a new disk partition). It SEEMS to happen just as the command is finishing up, but this is only a feeling.
I've tried repairing the disk with chkdsk, as I thought it might be a bad sector, but this hasn't cured it.
Any help gratefully received.
