Why does my C drive have so many long name folders Tags: CPUs Hard Drives Last response: April 15, 2011 11:46 PM in CPUs Share Dukie April 15, 2011 9:49:07 PM Hello, My hard drive always has a large number of long named folders and many of them are empty. Why do they keep collecting them? I use my utilities, but they stay on there.

As long as everything is running fine just kill them. If you are having trouble with ownership just install and use unlocker.
