    WIN 10 Pro 'Program Files/ModifiableWindowsApps' folders not on C:


    I always check my disks for empty folders [Glary] I have found TWO instances of "Program Files/ModifiableWindowsApps" folders on Both C: [System] and on my Data drive D: On D: I used Take Ownership and deleted "Program Files/ModifiableWindowsApps" folders. Checked 2 mins later and back. On C: original untouched, with older date, probably WIN Update Obviously as D:\Program Files/ModifiableWindowsApps are empty, not a real issue. Is there an "alias or link" in original on C: Please see attached. Thanks in advance Jason - ex VMS / ICL / IBM WIN 10 Pro 'Program Files/ModifiableWindowsApps' folders not on C: :)

  2. Anyone else have a 'ModifiableWindowsApps' folder?

    I've just noticed a folder I've never seen before in my Program Files folder called ModifiableWindowsApps and just wanna know if anyone else has this folder.

    There is also a principal listing in its security tab for a:
    Account Unknown(S-1-15-3-1024-3635283841-2530182609-996808640-1887759898-3848208603-3313616867-983405619-2501854204)

    that I have no idea what it is suppose to mean.


    Running Windows 10 Pr0 64-bit version 1903 (18362.175)
