    Wave files with metadata crashing Windows 10

    I'm having this problem on a new PC I just built. Anyone experience anything similar they can shed some light on?

    This problem seems to only be happening when accessing the wave files from the Seagate 8TB drives. If I copy some of the files to the system drive the problem does not occur.

    The system is:
    AsRock Z270 Pro 4
    i7 7700 4Ghz
    M.2 system drive
    2 x 8TB Seagate Barracuda's for data (Wave files)

    When browsing WAV files with embedded metadata in Windows 10 File Explorer, metadata in the Preview Pane begins to disappear and the green reading progress indicator in the address bar comes on. This continues until restarting, after a restart browsing any other files causes no issue but selecting a WAV file starts the issue all over again. DSF and FLAC files with the same metadata do not seem to cause any trouble but they also can't be read after accessing a WAV file and Explorer can't display anything properly in the Preview Pane, at any level of the system, once one of these WAV files has been accessed.

    Do you happen to have Quicktime player installed. Remember a while ago Quicktime was causing some issues with WAV files. Was mainly closing explorer.

    Think the fix was to either remove or set a different program as default for the file types.

    What bitrate are these wav files? I have no problem with any of my wav files up to 4800 mbps (24/96) that I store on my desktop Western Digital hard drives.

    What software are you using?
