Dont use windows lol j/k I would wait a little bit longer, because on large files sometimes windows will say that particular window "Is not responding" but will eventually stop lagging itself to death and load up. Or, is it just crashing as soon as you try to open it?

what the heck do you have in there that is so big that you have to have them all in one folder ? just split them up into different folders..done.

if it's a space problem and slowing down the computer, just burn them to a data cd/dvd, that's what i do to keep the hhd free of clutter and bog down.
