Windows 7: ../App Data/Local why so many folders

10 Jun 2013   #1

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1
../App Data/Local why so many folders

Looking for the solution for another problem I was directed to this area and noticed nearly 1,000 folders all with {345324A..........} type names and none with any content at all.

Thank you.
