Hello murhpy! Welcome to the Windows 7 Forums website! :ciao:Sorry to butt into this thread, on my first post, but I was fascinated by the sheer volume of what, to me, appeared as an almost total waste of time.
Why are the users so intent on worrying about something which, in Microsoft's eyes, is not, in the slightest degree, a problem?
There are several such hidden and system folders in Windows. They are hidden, by default, for the OS's exclusive use. Axiomatically, that is why they are hidden.
Several are constantly being written to, during the daily operations. They can easily be unhidden - possibly a mistake by Microsoft.
Surely it can be no concern, operationally, to users, that empty folders are being created in a portion of the OS that they should not even be seeing! (Or have I overlooked the essence of this thread?) I can see this has been pointed out, at least twice, by a moderator, but ignored.
I can assure those who mentioned it, that Microsoft will totally ignore any complaint/bug suggested from this feature.
Or perhaps, at this stage, it is just curiosity.? If not, hit the reset button in the folder views, and the problem goes away.
The basic issue is that it bothers some people that a folder that is NOT supposed to be used for temporary files is being used as such, and that some Windows Live programs are leaving an ever growing collection of "nuisance" folders in a location that is not being cleaned up. Those of us bothered by this are simply interested in getting to the bottom of the issue, and are therefore sharing our findings in this forum with others that are seeing the same thing.To quote Shakespeare: this is "Much Ado About Nothing".
The thread has gone on ad infinitum, ad nauseum for way too long in my humble opinion.
It's always been that way! What in the world do you mean? Windows has TEMP folders and temp folders!?!The basic issue is that it bothers some people that a folder that is NOT supposed to be used for temporary files is being used as such
Windows does not download and install updates every night. See my previous post for the solution.It's not just a Windows 7 problem. I use Vista Home Premium and I've accumulated about 60 folders in AppData\Local since I re-installed a few months ago. It seems to be about one empty folder for each day so it could be related to updates which download and instal automatically each night. The Folder creation time is usually around 9am, ie about 6 hours after my auto update starts, and about the time I start using the computer. I often run things overnight and still get a freebie folder! I don't use MSE - I have Avast as my antivirus, but I use Defender as my firewall.
Forgive me, but I don't understand your previous post, or how it shows a "solution" to this issue. You said that it's self-explanatory, but unfortunately, it isn't to me, so could you possibly explain it in more detail?Windows does not download and install updates every night. See my previous post for the solution.
