I have a WD 1TB external HDD (NTFS) that causes Windows Explorer to freeze up whenever I try to access it.
I had TestDisk analyze it and there seems to be nothing wrong: size is reported ok, partition table is fine, files are accessible. I had TestDisk write the partition table just to be sure, but nothing changed.
When I looked at the log, though, I saw that the "NTFS Volume is dirty." Could that be causing the problems? What should I try to gain normal access again?
