  1. File Explorer Displaying Wrong Properties Info


    Hi! This is my first thread post.

    I'm very concerned about this problem which I know little about. I am an avid mp3 collector and massively download files onto a 4TB external drive. The last time I checked a folder's properties to see how many files it contained, it read "140" when I knew there were over 15,000 files in there.

    It does the same thing for all of the other folders (subgenres) within the main folder (electronic music). Other folders located in the same folder as my (electronic music) folder have been unaffected, and I'm thinking it is because I have not accessed them as recently as the (electronic music) folder. So something happened today or in the last couple days - all I've done is download music from SoulSeek as I've done for years, and sort it into folders on my external drive using File Explorer.

    I was about to backup my files from this hard drive onto another drive - but now I'm afraid that if there is corruption, it could spread onto the other drive. I want to find a solution first before I make a horrible mistake, as I've been known to do because I'm often very technologically reckless and naive.

    That's it in a nutshell - please help! Thank you.

    :)

    File Explorer Displaying Wrong Properties Info for Certain Folders


    Welcome to TenForums @wrecklesstechn0

    The thing you have to remember about File Explorer is that it will only list in Properties the files and folders you have permission for. You can easily demonstrate this if you have more than one user account on your PC. Look in C:\Users at the properties of the user folder for another user account, it will say 0 files.

    I suspect that over time you have added to this collection from a number of different accounts and/or using a number of different PCs. It's most likely to be the permissions, but if you want to be sure there's no corruption then open a Command Prompt (Admin) and run (using the appropriate drive letter instead of 'G:') the command;
    CHKDSK /F G:

    (on a 4TB drive it may take a while to run)

    Windows Explorer/file Properties Details not displaying tags


    I'm trying to tag documents so they can be found easily but I don't have the option to add a tag to a file. The Details panel in my Windows Explorer does not display tags in the list of properties. Also, when I right-click a file, go to Properties and then click the Details tab, tags are not listed there either.

    Is there a way to turn this feature on? Thanks in advance for any help.

    Displaying the Comments Property for FLAC files

    Is there something special about a FLAC file that prevents Windows 10 File Explorer from displaying the contents of the Comments Property?

    I am using the Comments Property field to log the catalogue numbers of my digitised record collection. When I view MP3 files with File Explorer, it displays the contents of the comments field along with the title, artist, track no, etc. However, if I convert
    the files to FLAC format, the properties remain except for the comments that now appear blank. But, if I convert the files back to MP3 then the comments reappear. So it seems that the Comments Property data is saved but File Explorer is unable to display it.

    Do I have File Explorer installed and set up correctly?

    Is there a problem with File Explorer itself?

    Any advice gratefully received.

    Mark
