Windows – Mysterious folder on hard disk


I found a mysterious folder named e849ad3686d570a415 in the root of a hard disk. It contains a subfolder i386 which is inaccessible.

Do I have malware on my PC? How can I delete this folder?

Best Answer

  • It's an installation folder. I have one with an "amd64" and "i386" folder. The contents of the "i386" folder look like the installation files for a printer driver.

    To take control of a folder see the answers to my question on the subject. Don't forget to turn "Simple File Sharing" off.
