Hi. I have a folder with hundreds of files on an external drive. When I open this folder with windows file explorer, it closes after a couple of seconds. When I open the same folder using an alternative file explorer ("Directory Opus"), it crashes after a few seconds and I get the popup window attached (sorry it is in French). Opening other folders works fine. So I am suspecting that one of the file is corrupted and makes file explorer crash. Is there a way to fix this? I guess I would need to delete the corrupted file but don't know how to identify it among the hundreds in the folder...
Thanks for your help File-Explorer-Crash--Directory-Opus-.JPG
