    File Explorer and NAS keep on crashing


    This started to happen 10 minutes ago

    basically I can't access stuff in File Explorer (mapped and non-mapped folders and hard drives)

    and I'm downloading a huge file onto my NAS and QBitTorrent keeps saying I/O error

    Oh also, basically not only do they keep crashing but also File Explorer (on my windows PC the NAS is connected to and ofc its also connected to the router) is very slow to load any hard drives and goign into a drive's content takes a long long time and then it crashes again

    You will execute the Chkdsk command on the drive letter of your NAS from Command Prompt.

    If there's a lot of mapped network shares then do I execute it on all of them?

    Okay so update; I went into Windows Updates, downloaded and installed an optional update, the only one that was available, rebooted the pc coz I was prompted to do so, and then the issue seems to have been resolved without running any commands or scripts. Interesting.

    I will leave this thread open in case the problem does persist. Thank you nonethelesss, FreeBooter
