Microsoft Windows XP Home SP2 Moving Folder and files error, system hangs.
Posted on 2007-10-17
Windows XP Home Edition, SP2
I recently tried to move one folder from one internal hard drive to another and the status window that I normally see did not appear. Instead, only the folder and one file was copied to the hard drive and much later, when I tried to shut off my computer, I got the following messege.
Windows is currently working with a file. Either wait for windows to finish, or close it before you quit windows.
In safemode, I can move the same folder over to the other hard drive, albeit, it takes forever to do it that way. Could this have anything to do with Microsoft doing an update without asking first?
