  1. Hidden folders in root of drive keep reappearing after deletion


    There are two folders in the root of my D: SSD and now in My Documents folder. The names change after deletion and the files within these folders are random.



    Files:

    6HVxq.mdb

    arbergearbelt.sql

    cream offer points.doc

    diverse mail reproduce.pem

    entries.rod.rtf
    fruit allows selection puerto.txt

    fUh7QMJWRgM.xlsx

    motor emission supplies.xls

    practice.advocate.jpg

    sOXc.docx


    Neither Malware Bytes or Spybot Search and Destroy flag any of the files and Windows Defender also has not. I haven't opened these. This has been happening about 6 months now.


    My searches online have not helped so I thought if maybe someone had experienced something like this before.


    Thanks,

    SysopChris.

    Hidden folders

    I installed `Kane and Lynch` on my PC twice in Program Files(x86) folder but I can`t find them (2 folders with game). But free space on my HDD is lower. So there`re those folders on my hdd. I use option `unhide` hidden folders but still can`t find them. Any suggestions? How can i delete those hidden folders?

    When I run istallation for this game I can see those folders in Program Files(x86) folde.

    I`m using Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit.

  3. Deleting Hidden Folders

    Hidden files should not be deleted on a whim.

    When you suggested deleting any hidden files I concluded you were referring to existing files/folders on the external drive, not the local drive.

    Have you tried using Robocopy to backup the files to the drive?

  4. Hidden folders in root of drive keep reappearing after deletion

    Suddenly reappear a deleted folder

    I notices two other strange things.
    1. The folder is not complete empty. It has also a folder inside. In this folder is exist also a empty folder.
    2. I tried to move the 'Public' folder to wastebin and the I asked from Bitdefender to erase the waste bit. Bitdefender read this name wrong. See attachment.
    3. When I confirm to delete it, it said that access denied - See second attachment.

    PS: The folder name between the two screenshots is different because I restore the folder, change the name and move it back to wastebin.
