    ReadyBoot Folder Won't Regenerate


    Hi.

    My Prefetch folder (C:\Windows\Prefetch) was deleted, so I manually recreated it. Now, many .pf files have been regenerated, which is expected. But several days have past and I've restarted my computer a few times, and I still don't get a complete ReadyBoot folder.

    I dug up this thread and followed the notes there.

    • I executed "sfc /scannow" in Command Prompt, which found no integrity violations.
    • I opened Performance Monitor and found that ReadyBoot (located under "Data Collector Sets" -> "Startup Event Trace Sessions") was disabled, so I enabled it and restarted. The ReadyBoot folder was recreated, but it's sitting empty. Furthermore, I see that ReadyBoot has disabled itself in the Performance Monitor again.
    Also, whenever I open the Prefetch folder, I get a warning message stating that I don't currently have permissions to access this folder. I need to press "Continue" to be able to open the folder and view the contents. I notice that no other folder in C:\Windows\ gives me this warning. So perhaps the permissions on the Prefetch folder aren't set correctly.

    The Superfetch service is running and set to automatically start.

    Can anyone help me get ReadyBoot running again? Does anyone know what all the proper permissions on the Prefetch (and ReadyBoot) folders are supposed to be? Is it normal for ReadyBoot to be disabled in Performance Monitor?

    Thank you.

    :)

    Windows.old folder keeps regenerating.

    So i tried deleting the Windows.old folder using the disk cleanup and even the command prompt, but unfortunately, the same folder keeps regenerating itself. After its deletion, and a restart of the laptop, the folder is back. Its size is around 44 GB's,
    so its taking a lot of space in my SSD. How can i delete the folder in such a manner, that it doesn't keep regenerating itself.

    Please help.

    Thanking You.
