Original Title: "This folder is empty" when trying to open certain folders
as the title says, I'm getting this problem since like 3 days ago. I'm trying to open my Music folder on my desktop or my whole D drive (with tons of items on it like game installations, music, pictures etc.) but the window that opens is empty and writes in it "This folder is empty". The address bar keeps loading and if I leave it loading (green bar filling), it stops right before the end and the window freezes. When I then click on the window a few times, the whole explorer.exe crashes and restarts, closing the window...
It's driving me crazy as I can't acces the documents on my D drive. When I search for anything on the drive, it finds it and I can use it (pictures open, songs play). So the files are actually there but just aren't loading. I've made sure that the files are not hidden and I've already scanned for malware.
I've also done a scan with HD tune on both of the drives and they are all green. Also the SMART info is nearly ideal.
Also, explorer.exe goes up to 95% CPU usage at random times when I try to open the folders. Maybe that's a clue?
I've found that when trying to rename the affected item, explorer.exe also crashes immediately. When accessing the items through a cmd window, everything is there and works. NEED URGENT HELP! My school files are on the D: drive!!!
