    A file that reappears and increases in size every time I delete it


    Hello there,


    I have an issue that is killing my C drive's space; a one file that takes up almost 100 Gbs. Not only this, but also it reappears and doubles in size every time I delete it. I tried to scan it multiple times using windows security center, yet there is the no threats' report pops up, even the offline check-up has been done too but without any valuable result. The directory is: C:\Users\........\AppData\Local\Temp


    SOS, this is madness!


    Best,

    :)

    We understand how you feel about the situation. We're sorry for the trouble.

    I suggest you to follow the below steps to delete the folder and check if it's reappear.


      • Open the Command prompt with admin (Windows +x and select Command prompt).

      • In the command prompt, type the command below and press enter.

        NOTE: Substitute
        Full Path of Folder within quotes below with your folder's full path within quotes instead.

        RD /S /Q "Full Path of Folder".

      • The folder should now be deleted.

      • Close the command prompt.
    Please reply to us with the status of the issue and check if it helps.

  3. Reappearing deleted files

    Under what circumstances do the files reappear?

    • After a reboot?
    • At a fixed time?
    • When you do something specific?
    • At random?
