    Is your account able to view hidden folders?
    Also there is a Windows Eight forum, they might be able to help you more over there! :)

    If you change the setting in control panel under folder options, you may find something lurking in the folder?

    Thats fine, i didnt mean "lurking" as in a malware or virus. I just meant a file or other. Did you find anything?

    Try this, but don't delete anything unless you know what it does. BACK UP!

    I found another option in Windows Explorer: "Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)". Just in case you need help finding this option:
    Open Windows Explorer
    If the menu options (File, Edit, View, Tools, Help) don't show, click ALT
    Click Tools
    Select Folder options...
    Click on the View tab
    Uncheck: Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)
    You can now see and search for hidden, protected operating system files such as Thumbs.db.

    To see if there is anything in the folder, then we can decide what the next action is.
