  1. Application Data 13 levels deep


    Recently my C:\ drive lost 3GB. Still haven't figure out why, but whilst searching I came across this strange issue.

    If I go to c:\users and look in the All Users hidden folder I will see a folder called Application Data which is a junction to C:\ProgramData. If I cd to that hidden Application Data folder I will see another hidden Application Data junction that again points to C:\ProgramData. And so on until I get to 13 levels of Application Data folders.

    If I look at if from the C:\ drive I see a hidden folder called Documents and Settings. In that folder is a hidden folder called All Users which is a symlink to C:\ProgramData. In All Users is a hidden folder called Application Data which points to C:\ProgramData, and so on down 13 levels of Application Data folders.

    Eg. C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Application Data\Application Data\Application Data\Application Data\Application Data\Application Data\Application Data\Application Data\Application Data\Application Data\Application Data\Application Data>

    At the 13th level is a folder called Battle.Net. That should be there. If I look at the contents of c:\programdata\battle.net I see files as I would expect.

    If I dir from the command line from the above path (13 levels of application data), it says that the Battle.net folder is empty. If I attempt to cd into batlle.net is says the file or folder does not exist.

    Perhaps I've hit the maximum length of the path at that point.

    So I went back one level and did rd "application data". Then dir /ah. It now says The system cannot find the path specified.

    Going back to C:\Users\All Users, the entire path is now gone. Have I just broken Windows?

    So, without reinstalling windows how do I resolve this?

    :)

    Microphone connection with Dragon 13 and Windows 10

    Hi Michael,

    One of the possible cause to this issue is compatibility conflict. Some user reports that the latest version of Dragon 13 doesn't require Compatibility mode in order to run correctly. We suggest turning off Compatibility mode by following the steps below:

    • Locate Dragon 13 shortcut and right click it.
    • Select Properties from the list.
    • Click on Compatibility tab and locate Run this program in compatibility mode for and uncheck it.
    • Click OK to save the changes and try running the application again.

    Update us with the outcome so we can provide further assistance.

    Remove PUP application from DVD Drive (FApplication Data 13 levels deep :) CDROM


    Unfortunately, that's how Disk Clean ends.

    If you want to check - run it again to see if there's is anything to clean (look at the size on items in the list - small size means only a bit has accumulated since the last run - large means something wasn't cleaned)
    Disk Clean / extended goes deep, that's why I suggested that you run it first.

    I'd say just move on to the next step: cCleaner, since you're in the cleaning phase.

    Ok, onward and upward!
