Whilst crossbow7 seems to have identified your problem - you also say "but surely it's not a limited capacity file...is it?"

There are limitations on the size of files and the maximumu number of files a folder can hold. This is dependent on your particular file system click here

Create a few Folders.

Move your Files into the new Folders.

Many moons ago I had a similar problem with a ZIP Drive. Limited, I found to 1024 files or so.

I did the above and the problem was solved.

This may not solve your problem, but could be worth a try.
