What is this strange folder

  davecartman 10:33 04 Mar 2018

On my very cluttered desktop, W7 I have suddenly spotted a folder I do not recognise. It is named hdsentinelproportable. It is 41.3MB contains one folder and 130 files. I have opened it and not being at all high tech I cannot work out what it is, can anyone enlighten me and does it pose some sort of threat ? Thanks in advance.

Has SMART on your hard drive shown a problem?

Have you tested your hard drive / drives for problems?

Thanks for both replies. I have never tested my hard drive as I don't know how to do it. It would seem from the links it is legitimate software ( why didn't I think of Google ) but I never downloaded it or if I did I was not aware of it at the time so how it got there is a mystery.
