Entire desktop goes black, when I drag a file out of external HD window
Hello there, I need help, this is driving me nuts!
This is the first time I have had to actually ask a question as generally some one else already has had the same problem so I guess what I am dealing with this time is good one.
Since a month or so ago, every time I drag a file out of my external Hard Drive to any destination (even the tree file on the left), the entire desktop blacks out for a second or two. Then the window from the HD closes and everything else remains open (the drag and drop is not saved of course).
Any thought on why this might be happening?
Windows 7 64bit
WD Hard Drive (USB3)

Have you tried the external on another system or another external on the one in question?
What happens if you try a flash drive instead of the external?
One of the first things I'd do is a system restore to before the issue started.
