I have a PC monitoring program which saves JPG files to a shared folder in Windows\System32 which accessible by all users - permissions are set for full control for "everyone".
These files are invisible with Explorer - I have show hidden files and folders ticked and Hide protected system files is deselected. I can also not see the files using DIR or ATTRIB in a command prompt. Also, properties of the folder indicate 0 Bytes and 0 Files.
However, if I use TreeSizePro to scan the folder I can see the files, which indicate an attribute of A, but only the files created in my User Profile. Equally, when using another User Profile which is being monitored, I can see the files associated with that user but not my files.
I'm guessing this has something to do with Windows controlling access to a new folder within a System Folder.
Can anyone shed any light on this behaviour?
