    windows FILE explorer crashing - not consistently


    Weird issue. When I try to perform a seach on an external HDD with boolean operators windows file explorer will freeze then crash. Similiarly If I simply go into a folder on an exteral HDD and select a file Sometime it will crash just when I double click on the file. This second issue though doesn't seem to happen consistently across all files which I find bizarre.
    I have tried disabling all start-up programs and the problem still occurs. Also run diagnostic checks on the two HDD I'm using with no problems reported. most files are totally accesbile whilst others aren't while the search issues happens completely consistently.
    Neither issue seems to affect local hard drive.
    Thanks for any tips.
