Strange folders

Hi all,

I just used Handy Recovery for the first time.

Can anybody tell me what the folders with the dollar signs relate to e.g $$folder_7726

Thanks

If they are created by the prog I suspect either the manual of help files will tell you.

It looks to me that it could be an Adware or Virus vault file. If you have removed any spy ware or virii this could be the folder that has been created for them.

If the first byte of the file is unknown, character "$" is used as a substitute. (FAT partition) -which if you know the file name you can replace with correct letters to restore file. :)
