    Does anyone know what this folder is for? it just appeared when i turned on my PC today. it is not my main hard drive it is my fourth sata hard drive in my system, windows 7 pro 64-bit. It is actually a sata hard drive from an Acer aspire 5155 laptop that i happened to save and put random crap on it:D

    Just use Take Ownership
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\runas]
    @="Take Ownership"
    "NoWorkingDirectory"=""
    
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\runas\command]
    @="cmd.exe /c takeown /f \"%1\" && icacls \"%1\" /grant administrators:F"
    "IsolatedCommand"="cmd.exe /c takeown /f \"%1\" && icacls \"%1\" /grant administrators:F"
    
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\runas]
    @="Take Ownership"
    "NoWorkingDirectory"=""
    
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\runas\command]
    @="cmd.exe /c takeown /f \"%1\" /r /d y && icacls \"%1\" /grant administrators:F /t"
    "IsolatedCommand"="cmd.exe /c takeown /f \"%1\" /r /d y && icacls \"%1\" /grant administrators:F /t"
    and you can access it

    When I looked at all my hard drives,even my external ones,this folder appears on all of them,I called Microsoft,and they said it was part of an update,no big deal,they just could not tell me which one :p

    Run 7-Zip File Manager as admin & remove it ;)
