I copyed my pictures folder from my ssd drive to a external usb 3.0 drive and now when i click on one of the folders it will crash the whole drive. I do have folders and then sub folders and so on. I think the total size is around. 100gb of jpeg images.

I want to know if i should put them on a thumb drive or a ssd?
I even thought about useing some kind of software that can make a pdf album or something. All the small files are crashing the drive i am guessing. Cant give you a size because of the folder is crashing the external usb 3.0 512gb hard drive.

You might also want to check the S.M.A.R.T. status of the drive as well, it may be failing. Pictures and lots of small files don't normally cause drives to "crash".

What do you mean by "crashes"? When I think of hdds and crashing, I'm imagining a dead drive.

By crash i mean its like its so overwhelmed that it just ejects its self from the system and i have to un plug and re plug it in. Its just the pictures folder my movie folder and other stuff wirks fine. Its really odd.

I am working offshore right now so i am limited to what i can do.
