    "Move to" files wont let me create new folders

    Greetings all,

    was trying to google this issue but cant find a solution.

    I have multiple drives on my comp. I been using the registry tweak to enable "Move to/Copy to" in windows Explorer for a long time, to move a video file from one drive (lets call it Drive E) into another (Drive F). While doing that, if needed I create a new folder, and never had issues.

    Recently, I have this weird glitch. If I create a new folder on the drive F (doesn't matter if its through the move to menu, or if I go to the actual drive and create it), it creates it..no issue. But when I go to move the file from Drive E into Drive F, it will only show me the last folder I moved something to Drive F, but not the rest of the folders on that drive. Restarting wont help..it will be like that until I remove the new folder created on drive F.

    Does anyone have any idea what this could be?? At a loss...

    Have you run a CHKDSK on the affected driver?
    Can you display all the drive contents using Windows Explorer?

    Running chdsk now. I can see the drive contents in Windows Explorer fine. Just when I try to use the move to command, it only shows me one folder. hopefully chkdsk might find something. Running the deep scan one so will take a while. Will update when it finishes.
