Cannot Save Metadata: Error Writing Data

Okay, so this is a new error that keeps popping up when I try to edit flac files. The weird thing is that it's very random. Usually 90% of the time I get that error now.

I have tried different files, moved the files to different folders and drives, check permissions on the file and drive, made sure my back up program wasn't accessing it, ran winamp as an administrator, scanned my hard drive, etc.

I did upgrade to windows 8.1 and I believe it began right after that. Yesterday I did a full reformat and clean install of the OS and winamp and I am still greeted with that error. So I am lost, and havent found anything via searching. Problem doesn't seem to be an issue on network files.

Winamp 5.65
Windows 8.1 Pro
No excess plugins

Any help would be great

Okay, I think I figured it out, I believe it was caused by the search indexer on windows. I am not sure why all of a sudden it was given me problems (probably due to a new install) or why flac files were only affected.

Going into the indexing options and unchecking .flac appears to have solved it.
