Hidden Files in Windows Live Onecare setup RRS feed

  • Question

  • I understand the three folders in the external drive that receive the backup for two PC's in the one circle setup are hidden files. In that they are hard to delete or tamper with. But does this also mean that the contents wether they be 2Gig or 0Gig are also a mystery. I've never been able to get anything but a 0 for the occupied space in the two PC's folder

  • I've moved your post to the backup topic folder.

    Yes, that is correct. Since the files are hidden/protected, you won't be able to get a directory listing unless you take ownership of the folders. The process is the same as for deleting the backups in this FAQ: FAQ: How to Delete Backups
