    Right Clicking Issue

    Ok so this isn't a big issue but it's driving me nuts. I run the latest version of Windows 10 64 Bit. I have 4 disks in my computer. 3 SSDs and 1 HDD.

    Every time I log in I can right click anywhere I want with no issue. But if I choose to right the HDD under my computer I get a blue spinning circle that replaces the mouse curser and it stays that way until I try and close the window. After a few seconds my screen goes black and then everything returns back to normal after a few seconds. I'd imagine that would be the explorer.exe crashing and restarting.

    The HDD has nothing on it at all as it is just a backup drive for when I move files around. It's just driving me insane because I don't know what's casuisng the hang up.

    I can right click any other drive and everything is fine. I right click the desktop and I may see a blue circle for a fraction of a second but then the context menu appears with no issue.

    Here is the weird thing though. As long as I right click something else first I can then right click the HDD with no problem but if the HDD is the first thing I right click it hangs up and explorer.exe crashes.
