    My system freezes when I try to add a folder while saving a file in an application. When adding a folder in File Explorer I have a similar problem, but less frequently. Any ideas?

    First of all which o/s are you using?

    Off hand I can think off two possible scenarios, you have a heavily fragmented mechanical hdd or you have a failing ssd / mechanical hdd.

    Also have you run an anti virus scan using malwarebytes and Hijackthis + housecall?

    Link below:
    Free tools & services ? protection for computers & Android devices

    I have seen this occur in both situations, the latter being at a previous place of employment where they cheaped out on a no-brand ssd.

    Try something auslogics disk defrag or perfect disk see if that helps and personally I use Ultimate Defrag by Disktrix.

    If the disk defrag and housecall, a/v scans and hijackthis return nothing then you most likely you have a failing drive.

    I would back everything up as soon as possible.
