    weird file appeared after update to ver1809


    Hi,
    I don't know if this is a problem for sure but I noticed that my C: drive suddenly lost 10 gb of free space. Looking at C: directory I noticed a folder titled 100 that used 9.91 gb that I didn't remember being their before; its subfolder 880 and 880 s subfolder has WINSxS and a number of other windows apps and dll files.
    I next checked the system WIN folder and it has Win SxS with very similar contents.
    Does anyone who updated to ver. 1809 have these files in a numbered file instead of a named file?? Should I remove it and regain the lost space on my ssd ?? Most of all what is it and why would update add it to C: drive??

    :)

    Hi dalchina. Good news, I followed your suggestion and reinstalled the update and now it appears as "installed correctly" *Biggrin Maybe it was not necessary to run the Windows Update Troubleshooter or maybe if necessary. But using it I do not think it could have worsened something. The installation was very fast, unlike the first time it showed step 1 and step 2 completed.

    Thanks for the suggestions and for the time to respond weird file appeared after update to ver1809 :) Best regards.


    And thanks for the tip of that program, I'll have it on my list.

    geforce experience takes an age to load..

    Well that's why I asked. Mine is on SSD and takes 11 seconds. Your list of games will not appear if it has not checkd for updated suggested settings for awhile until it checks.

    When it says it is refreshing the game list, it is checking, because NVIDIA periodically updates suggested settings. Plus it will look for those for new games you have installed.

    So, the less it is run, the slower it will be.
