I seen the 00 with other things in the picture but I'm not familiar with the program TreeSize.
So I don't really know what it is trying to tell us.

It's just the view setting at the top, it's set to view in GB and those files are under the minimum size to be recognized at 0.1 GB.

I believe a full system disclosure is in order. As well as a look at said directory with windows Explorer with hidden files showing.

Well mohavepc I did ask for some specs early on but none forthcoming and if you open the OP's system specs the OP says "7 Ultimate I think" and other stuff that makes not much sense.
So jus have a look and see.

I saw that John and I was just mentioning it in case the op comes back and still wants help. I'm getting to a point that if they are not willing to fully disclose what parts they are running and so forth I bow out. Makes no sense to best guess this kind of issue.

I only responded because of a request for help in VIP.
Have a good day

In Treesize, click on View then Show Details. Check Show directory tree and details column. That will give you a lot more info about each file. Looks like this:

Of special interest is the Owner column at far right.

Yes Z but mate the info on the system is very sketchy as you can see if you open his specs section, I ma just wondering just what is in the machine.
Like mohavepc I think I might duck out too as there is no info forthcoming.

After three days and no response from OP I am going to say "Uncle" and remove this from my subs. Good luck to the OP and I hope they get it figured out.
