    Is there a way to re-create it? I know its mostly useless, but I like to have all default Windows system folders left alone... I deleted PerfLogs accidentally...

    If I simply re-create PerLogs folder - Windows 8.1 isn't going to see it as a system folder, is it? It may see it as a user-made folder, even though the user has administrator privileges.

    As far I know, "PrefLogs" folder is not the windows default folder. It's created afterwards. If I'm not wrong, it's created when you install the chipset or the intel GMA drivers. I don't keep it, it has no use. :p
    But if you want that folder back badly, try installing those 2 drivers again... :p :p

    The folder PerfLogs is not a system essential nor Intel's. It's there after Windows installation..
    It is the default location where Performance Monitor saves it logs.
    It can be deleted if you like..

    Control panel -> Administrative tools -> System monitor.

    Right click on System diagnostics. Choose Run. Wait a couple of seconds and click Stop. That's all.
