    I've been having some problems with
    My Videos folder, for example, when saving a torrent or a video to this forlder, my PC gets stuck, but if I save it in any other place, it works fine.
    By now, this folder is 27.5GB, coud this be the cause of the problem?
    Is there a max. capasity for a folder?

    It sounds like you hit a 32GB barrier with FAT32 file system. Could that be it?

    Are you using FAT32 or NTFS?

    According to what it says
    on 'Hard Drive Properties', its NTFS.

    Strange. I have a folder larger than that. I have one that is over 39GB on NTFS.

    Perhaps you have another problem. Try running Error checking on that drive. Right click the drive icon and select Properties>Tools.
